Historical delight
Feb 2020
This place is one of my favorites in the marble rock city of Jabalpur. The temple depicts the rare occasion of lord Shiva's marriage with goddess Parvati. It is surrounded with statues of 64 goddesses who had come to attend the wedding ceremony of Parvati. It is a historical delight to see this archaeological heritage site.
Only regret is that (like in most of North India) all the statues have been damaged by the Mogul emperor Aurangzeb.
But still it is a must see in Jabalpur. Please note that it is a gusrded & protected site, and hence be careful about the timings (10am to 5.00pm). Also be prepared to climb approx 100 steep steps.

EXCEEDING BEAUTIFUL TEMPLE: UNIQUE IN MANY WAYS
Dec 2019
The Chausath Yogini Temple in Jabalpur is located near the Dhuandhar Falls in Bhedaghat and is one of the oldest heritage sites in India. Built in the 10th century AD by the Kalachuri kings,the temple bears a distinct resemblance to the Khajuraho temples. We visited this temple during our recent trip to Dhuandhar Falls and Bhedaghat.
The temple on a hill top and accessed by a long flight of over 150 steps. It looks beautiful in the winter sun. The sanctum sanctorum has the idols of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati mounted on the divine bull Nandi. It is said that this is the depiction of the wedding of Lord Shiva. No other temple to my knowledge has this idol. Moreover, the divine bull which is normally outside a Shiv temple is inside the shrine and the housing of the bull outside the temple is empty.
The temple complex consists of 95 shrines which includes 64 Yoginis in circular fashion around the temple. The design of the temple has been kept simple but the idols of yoginis are exquisitely carved, each one depicting a unique posture.
The temple is partially damaged by muslim invaders, most of the Yogini figurines have been disfigured, but the exquisite carvings bring out the beauty.
The temple is a must visit if one is interested in temples and is around Jabalpur.

Beautiful temple
Dec 2019 • Family
It's a beautiful temple near Marble Rocks, Bhedaghat. You need to climb around 100 stairs to reach this temple. There is a priest who can help you in doing puja else you can pray also. From this temple you can view Narmada river down below. A very quiet and peaceful place worth visiting.

Hindu temple

This is a Hindu temple in bhedaghat. It is on a hill, so one has to take a lot of stairs to reach there. On the top, shiva temple is there. Most of the idols are broken.

Loved my visit today and the climbing was steep but with handrails it wasn’t so difficult. The female structures was worth clicking for photographs. People were worshipping the temple and the temple looks exquisite. I enjoyed my visit

Not to be missed
Mar 2019 • Couples
Located close to the boating area of the marble rocks, the temple has a unique architectural style. Chausat yoginis in circular temple with a very interesting shiv parvati idol in the centre. Not the interesting architectural elements. The Yogini idols are all broken but I found them quite intriguing, extremely beautifully sculpted with some very interesting names.
The climb is quite steep, avoidable for young children and elderly. Carrying a bottle of water is suggested.

Circular stone temple with 81 beautifully carved Yogini Sculptures
Jan 2019 • Family
Magnificent example of architecture and carving of ancient India.
It houses the rare idol in the inner sanctum of Shiva and Parvati marriage - all carved in black shining stone.
You already get drawn into the exquisitely carved sculptures of 81 different yoginis , which adorn the fully circular outer precincts with identical pillars creating a separate sanctum for each yogini chamber.
This is a 'Kalchuri Dynasty' temple completely exhibiting the worship of the 'female form' and all its different Yog. Myth goes that all these Yoginis with their different powers protected the Queen of the Kalchuri dynasty.
Everything is carved out of stones , including the stair slabs.
So don't get disheartened by the steep uphill trek, which will reveal an exquisite architectural space to behold.
