  • Chitragupta Temple, an integral part of the Khajuraho Temples, is dedicated to the Sun God (Surya). This temple is located about 91 m towards the north of the Jagadambi Temple and 183 metres southeast of an ancient tank, known as Chopra. Architecturally, the plan and design of this temple consists of a maha - manda, entrance porch, vestibule and a sanctum. Inside the sanctum, visitors can see an attractive idol of God Surya riding a chariot, drawn by seven horses. Three similar figures are also carved on the lintel of the doorway. The octagonal ceiling of the maha- mandapa is one of its most striking features of the temple. On the walls, you can see beautiful carvings of sura-sundaris and couples in erotic poses. Images of eleven-headed God Vishnu also adorn the walls of the temple
  • "One of the most unique, this temple has beautiful depictions of hunting and elephant fights."
