Chausath Yogini Temple

Chausath Yogini Temple

Chausath Yogini Temple, Chausath Yogini Temple tours, Visit Chausath Yogini Temple of Madhya Pradesh, Temple tourStanding beyond the tank, some distance from the other western group temples, this ruined temple is possibly the oldest at Khajuraho, dating from 900 AD or earlier. It is also the only temple constructed completely of granite and the only one not aligned east to west. Chausath means 64 - the temple once had 64 cells for the figures of the 64 yogonis who attended the goddess Kali. A 65th cell sheltered Kali herself.

The temple is built on a low rocky ridge and stands on a Cyclopean 'jagati' (platform), from 14 to 18 feet high, made of irregular dressed boulders of coarse local granite. The entire superstructure reared on the platform terrace is made of granite ashlars.

Distinguishing Features Chausath Yogini Temple, Chausath Yogini Temple tours, Visit Chausath Yogini Temple of Madhya Pradesh, Temple tour
This is the only temple at Khajuraho, which is not leaning due north south but
is oriented northeast to southwest. This temple has many well-known features. While most of the Khajuraho temples are made of a fine diversity of buff or pink sandstone, this is the only temple at the site, which is made completely of granite. Further, this structure is very simple in plan and design, with hardly any carvings or ornaments and has no pretensions for architectural grace.
