  • Not active worship place anymore. Rather an archeological site. Impressive sculptures and well maintained 
  • Although the ancient capital was abandoned, the remaining temples, both active and inactive speak to a wonderful history and are well worth the drive from Udaipur 
  • Awesome architect... Beautiful scenery next to a big lake.... well preserved temples.... approximately 45 minutes ride from Udaipur... private taxi costing about 900 rupees... well worth the trip....a...  more »

  • Saas-Bahu temple I.e. Sahastrabahu Bahu temple. Sahastra = thousands Bahu = arms. Temple related to God of thousand arms (hands) i.e. Lord Vishnu.
  • An amazing place. We were blown away with the amount sculpting that was done in this place. No pooja or prayers are offered here though. Would suggest to visit this place if you definitely visiting eklingji temple.
  • Must visit for photo and historical interest before it is destroyed. Little detour from main road and only to be a part of purposeful visit. Partial renovation for maintenance but at least 30% is original. Worth a visit for sculpture photo and history lover. It was built in 11th century. Pl follow the archeological rules even there is no one to guide and surveillance to you. Early morning to afternoon is best time.
  • Very Awesome art work & so beautiful temple & Sas-Bahu Temple is wonderful complex in little village, Nadga. This is a 10th century temple and dedicated to Lord Vishnu of Hindu religion. Great Kachwah King Mahapala was built this temple. The two main temples are situated very close to each other, hence the name Saas Bahu. The larger temple with a torana in front is called Saas while the smaller temple has octagonal ceilings (which is adorned with eight intricately carved female figures) and is called as Bahu. Both temple are constructed on a common platform. The temple is decorate with beautiful figures and Intricate designs. The wall of the temple is decorated with beautiful image and it has the beautiful Carved pillars in temple complex.
  • The place is a heritage site which provides a great scenic beauty... But this temple is only for ppl interested in archeology as there is nothing else to see... The sad part is the statues and carvings representing our rich heritage have already been stolen long back
