  • God Vishnu temple built by Channels dynasty. It is difficult to see such beautiful sculpture in this era.
  • Unlike other temples not too many sculptures on the temple tower. One of the two standalone temples in the southern complex. Murti of Vishnu stands as the tallest one found in Khajuraho at 13.5 feet. There is Shiva temple nearby that completes the southern temple group. These two can be covered in less than 30 minutes. There is excavated temple nearby but does not seem to have anything other than a base visible.
