Chausath Yamini Temple @ MItawali in Morena region of Madhya Pradesh, India

Last year I was out in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh and got to explore some very interesting places. Although it was summer season but uniqueness of these places made the visit worth.There are stories associated that architecture of Indian Parliament is inspired from the Chausath Yogini Temple in Mitawali (Mitaoli). This campus is in circular shape, as you can see these photograph. There is an outer region with 64 ('chausath' in hindi) pillars and a temple in the middle. Between the pillars, there are various small temples.There are other Chausath Yogini Temples in other parts of India. I have been to the other one in Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh)  and that's also similar, but probably smaller in size. Other Yogini temples are situated in Ranipur Jharial & Hirapur in Orissa and Khajuraho.As you can see in these photographs, this place is situated in dry region. One needs to trek to reach the temple, although the path is very well maintained.Chausath Yogini Temple, Mitawali AKA Ekattarso Mahadeva Temple, Mitaoli is dedicated to chausath yogini. This circular structure has 170 feet radius, located on 100 feet mountain.
