Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This Jain temple comes under eastern group of Khajuraho temples. It was built in late 10th century. It is named after bell and chain ornaments carved in its pillars. The temple is in a ruined state, only roof and elegant pillars decorated with Kirti mukhas are left. From the mouth of Kirti mukhas, hang loads of pearls and bells. Entrance has a multi-armed Jain goddess riding on Garuda. The doorway carvings show 16 dreams of Mahavira’s mother and 9 planets.

We saw the remains of this temple after seeing the Javari Temple and enroute to the Eastern Group Jain Temples. Our school boy guide taking a fancy to us, decided to guide us to the Jain Temples, through the Old Basti. The Ghantai temple fell enroute.
On speaking to the locals we got to know that it is a ruined Jain temple dedicated to the Jain Tirthankara Adinatha.
The temple is similar to the Parshvanath temple, but on a much larger scale. The surviving pillars feature a chain and bell motif, hence the name Ghantai. It is said that a large sculpture was found at the Ghantai temple ruins which is now in the Khajuraho archaeological museum.
The temple is enclosed by the Archaeological Survey of India and is one which is worth a visit before the Jain Temples of the Eastern Group.

Small quaint temple on the way to Eastern Group of Temples from the Jain Temples.

It was locked and children were playing inside. Not much to see as compared to the other magnificent temples, but its part of a legacy.

The Ghantai temple is a Jain temple dedicated to Adinatha. There’s not much to see as it’s largely just ruins. All I saw was the remnants of a building made up of columns, supporting a flat roof. As there’s not much to see, there’s no reason to go out of the way to see it.

Very beautifully constructed temple. Decorated pillars with bells and carvings in the temple is worth the visit. The pillared hall and the bells are very attractive.
Visit this temple and enjoy the carvings.

It is not a temple, it is a ruined temple. Only a few pillars stand where once was a temple. Not worth your time.

It is a ruined temple, which you can see while going from Jain Group of Temples to Vaman Temple. You can also skip this and go directly to Javari Temple and Vaman Temple.
