This is a little gem of a temple, built between 1075 and 1100. It has all the features of a larger, developed Khajuraho temple. It stands on a high plinth and has a delicate, soaring shikhara or tower. Its beautifully sculpted makara torana arch is an excellent example of the skill of those old stone carvers. In fact the carvers who worked here showed their expertise again when they also placed such toranas as canopies over the niches housing sculptures of the many gods of the Hindu pantheon. Look for them in the lower row of the jangha, literally the thigh, the central portion of the temple.
