Chaturbhuj Temple, Orchha

4.4
#4 of 7 in Historic Sites in Orchha
Perched on a high stone platform and dedicated to the four-armed incarnation of Vishnu, Chaturbhuj Temple is known for its spacious and well-lit interior so uncommon in Hindu shrines. Madhukar Shah erected the temple in the second half of the 16th century with the intention to protect the idols of Lord Rama dreamt by his wife. Since Madhukar worshiped Lord Krishna, the temple today caters to the followers of the Krishna-Bhakti cult. Notice the intricate ornamentation on the exterior and lotus emblems on the central dome ceiling.
