about devi jagadamba temple

Devi Jagadamba Temple is a part of the Western group of temples in Khajuraho. Known for its symbolism of the trinity, the temple is divided into three different bands. The first layer displays glorious sculptures of Brahma, the creator, while the middle band has carvings of Lord Shiva, the destroyer. The lower most band is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the sustainer. Built between 1000 and 1025 CE, its features include imaginative renditions of shardulas, mythical beasts with the body of a lion and the head of a parrot, elephant or boar.

Devi Jagadamba Temple also has a grand and glorious statue of the Goddess of the Universe, Goddess Parvati. Another striking feature about the temple is the controversial sculpture of Mithuna or Gemini which depicts the union between an amorous couple. A must visit for its striking and artistic carvings and sculptures, the temple is surely a sight to behold.
