About Parshwanath Temple, Khajuraho

Khajuraho is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country that is famous for its temples and fantastic architectures. The Parshwanath temple is a Jain Temple built by the then Chandela Ruler Dhanga during the early 10th century. This temple falls in the category of Alankrit temples and is a symbol of the king’s devotion and love. It is dedicated to Teerthankar.

This part of the temple group is famous for its perfect vastu maintained constructions. This is the perfect example of the expert talent of the craftsmen of that era. This temple is said to be the largest and the most beautiful of all the Jain Temples of Khajuraho. In spite of its simple design it attracts numerous visitors to it all over the year. It is completely different from all the other temples in the group.

This temple does not have any windows. It is known that in earlier times a majestic statue of Shri Adinath ji was established in this temple but in present time you will find a majestic statue of Shri Parshwanath Ji in the same position in place of the other statue. This temple is mainly a dedication to Shri Adinath ji.

The temple is built on a huge platform void of all designs and motifs. But, it seems there are a lot of attractive things that are worth admiring. The main temple complex has a beautiful mandap and a parikrama hall. Both of these look just too beautiful with all the maintenance.

This temple is mainly popular for its number of idols. These surround the temple that is very precisely built. All the idols depict the beauty of feminism. The temple can be entered after crossing seven gates that have maheen craftwork on them. Various motifs of male, female, Gemini, trees, flowers, Ganga, Yamuna, etc can be seen on the walls here. In the temple there are many idols of female Goddesses playing musical instruments like gandarva, manjeera, shankha, mridanga and vadya. The temple also comprises of idols of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.
