About Ghantai Temple, Khajuraho

The Ghantai temple is one of the temples in the eastern group of Khajuraho Monuments. It is a depiction of one of the 16 dreams of Mahavira’s mother. It was known that Mahavira was the last teerthankara who walked on the earth. This temple was also built by rulers of the Chandela dynasty during the 11th century. Presently it is just a piece of ruin. But it can be clearly seen that this is of the same design as the Parshwanath Temple but almost double its dimensions.

The name ‘Ghantai’ is derived from the many motifs of bells carved on the narrow pillars of this temple. What remains now are the remains of the grand entrance and the main temple hall or the mahamandapa. Both of these are supported by four pillars each followed later by an ornate ceiling. The entrance has beautiful designs of oblong patterns. This temple was the simplest amongst all and was the most modestly built. The door wall has a carving of an eight armed figure of Yakshi Charesvari sitting on a Garuda.

The architecture that preside the doorway is of the 16 different symbols that were seen in the dreams of Mahavira’s mother. This temple is surrounded by other Jain temples of Parshwanath, Adinath and Shantinath.
