Presently these are distinctively divided into two groups as Western and Eastern group of temples.
This cluster of temples is believed to connect with an interesting story of Chandela dynasty. It is said that the Moon God attracted and physically connected to a beautiful Brahmin girl, Hemvati in desire and passion. This resulted in the birth of Chandravarman, the founder of the Chandela Dynasty. Once Chandravarman had a dream of his mother requesting him to make a temple picturing the treasure of passion and amazing fantasy to the world. This led to the construction of temples with amazing sculptures in this little village surrounded by mountains of Chatarpur district. Every temple is different from another and two temples amongst them were built of sandstone.
