About Chaunsat Yogini, Khajuraho

Yogini is the term given to a female who practices yoga or a spiritual teacher of the Hindus or Buddhists as referred to by the people of the eastern countries like India, Nepal and Tibet.

For the Hindus, the mother is the first guru and in yoga studies as well the yogini is to be given the highest respect. Apart from this, any incarnation such as Goddess Saraswat, Lakshmi, etc. are all yoginis and generally any woman to have attained enlightenment is called a yogini.

There are four major yogini temples in India, two in Orissa and the other two in Madhya Pradesh. The two notable temples in Madhya Pradesh are at the North Western part of the Khajuraho Temple complex in Chattarpur District and the other at Jabalpur District. In these temples are yoginis are shown in lalitasana or erotic postures.

The chaunsat or 64 yoginis are- Bahurupa, Tara, Narmada, Yamuna, Shanti, Varuni, Kshemankari, Aindri, Varahi, Ranveera, Vanar-Mukhi, Vaishnavi, Kalratri, Vaidyaroopa, Charchika, Betali, Chhinnamastika, Vrishabahana, Jwala Kamini, Ghatavara, Karakali, Saraswati, Birupa, Cauvery, Bhaluka, Narasimhi, Vikatanna, Biraja, Mahakshmi, Kaumari, Mahamaya, Rati, Karkari, Sarpashya, Yakshini, Vinayaki, Vindya Balini, Veera Kumari, Maheshwari, Ambika, Kamiyani, Ghatabari, Stutee, Kali, Uma, Narayani, Samudra, Brahmani, Jwala Mukhi, Agnayeyi, Aditi, Chndrakanti, Vayubega, Chamunda, Murati, Ganga, dhumavati, Gandhari, Sarva Mangala, Ajita, Suryaputri, Vayu Veena, Aghora and Bhadrakali.

It is one of the oldest heritage sites that are situated on a hill top of Jabalpur during the 11th century. Though, most of it is in ruins but still it speaks a ton about the ancient culture and people of that era. This temple was built during the rule of Kalchuri Dynasty.

The temple is at a good height and has 64 different shrines for one yogini each. The central shrine is the largest and has a huge idol of Lord Shiva with his consort Goddess Parvati on Nandi the bull. The temple was made mostly of granite. Later this was destroyed by the Mughal invaders.

The design of the temple is simple but each yogini statue has a different posture from the other and is all exquisitely carved. The ambience is perfect with the open area and gives an all round view of the Narmada River. All in all, this place is a must visit for everyone.
