Shri Yantra Mandir, Amarkantak Reviews - Write a Review
The Maha Meru Sri Yantra Temple is encircled by forest on two sides, the ancient and sacred Batte Krishna Kund, a pond on its western side, and a water reservoir to its north. The temple is constructed in the middle of the Maikal, Satpuda and Vindhyachal range of mountains, 3500 ft. above sea level in Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh. Amarkantak enjoys the distinction of being the source of three rivers – the Juhila, the Sonbhadra and the Narmada. The borderline dividing north and south India also passes through this spot. The entrance to the sprawling temple precincts is through an impressive, sculpturally rich towering gate, the four sides of which are crowned with the faces of goddesses Saraswati, Kali, Bhuvaneshwari and Lakshmi. The lower segments of these sides are embellished with finely sculpted figurines of the 64 yoginis associated with the Tantrik cult, 16 on each side. In addition, Ganesh and Kartik are also featured on one of the sides.
A kilometer and half from the Sone udgam sthal was an amazing piece of architecture – Shri Yantra Temple with wonderful statues sculpted all over the temple premises. The entrance of the temple is as grand as it can get. However, when we were there, the entrance to temple was closed. At least we were happy to know that restoration activities were being carried on to bring back this temple to its past glory. May be in few years, it will become the major attraction of Amarkantak.
A beautiful offbit place in the heart of greenery. The temple reminded me of the Angkor Wat style of architecture of Cambodia. There are different forms of adi Shakti maa and the Garba griha has both Goddess Lakshmi and Saraswati with Lord Ganesha. Situated few km from Narmada mandir Amarkantak.
Very beautiful temple adorned with sculptures all over. Built to specifications according to tantric scriptures. For lack of maintenance the condition of this structure is deteriorating very fast.
Nice place but completely ignored by govt. Needs restoration
