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.

  • I don't know why, but it reminds me of European gothic architecture. Looks very mesmerising and its actually much more bigger than it looks on the pics  more »
  • A special view of the two palaces of the fort. But the temple itself has its own grandeur. It's not as visited as the newer temples, so it makes a quiet impression, especially in the morning.  more »
  • The temple is great, but you can't see so much. Except...... If jet comes across the male with the key. He can take you upstairs with beautiful views and all the way to the roof. Tour includes bats gang. Expecting to end some brutality to money. So please do not hesitate to pronounce this in advance. Breed brutally and before you know it costs it proportionately an ability.
