Chitragupta Temple (Khajuraho)

Chitragupta Temple (Khajuraho)
 
Chitragupta Temple At Khajuraho, Chitragupta Temple At Khajuraho tours, Visit Chitragupta Temple At Khajuraho(Built in early 11th century) The Chitragapta Temple is situated at the extreme northern end of a row of four temples, extending from south to north. It is the only Khajuraho temple dedicated to Surya, the Sun God and demonstrates an evolution when compared with the Lakshmana and Vishvanatha monuments.

The Kandariya Mahadeva stands at the southern extremity of the row, while the ruined Mahadeva shrine and the Jagadambi temple come in between. It is located about 75 yards north of the Jagadambi Temple and about 100 yards south-east of the Chopra Tank, which is a deep three-storeyed stepped well built by the Chandelas.

It is significant that this temple, which is the only sun temple at Khajuraho, was constructed in close proximity to the tank. Attempts have obviously been made at restoration, but it is not in as good condition as other temples. Nevertheless it has some very fine sculptures, which includes processions, dancing girls, elephant fights and hunting scenes.

In the inner sanctum, Surya can be seen driving his chariot and seven horses, while on the central niche in the south facade you can see an 11-headed statue of Vishnu himself; the 10 others are of his incarnations.
