A Beautiful Architectural Marvel, Dulhadeo Temple in Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh || A majestic temple with ethereal carvings on its outer walls

The second temple in the Southern Group of Temples is the Dulhadeo temple. When we visited the temple it was under restoration, so we weren't able to look at the temple up close, but even from the distance the temple looked quite majestic standing alone amid vast lawns.   The Dulhadeo temple's name means "divine bridegroom". The temple is 2.1km from the Western Group of Temples and 1.6km from the Chaturbhuj temple, the second temple of the Southern Group of Temples. The approach road to this temple is a tough ride.

The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiv and has the lingam as his representation deified in the sanctum. Built in the nirandhara style, which means that the sanctum is built without an ambulatory, the temple has a sanctum, a vestibule, a maha-mandap, and an entrance porch.   Built in the late 12th century, this is one of the last temples in the Khajuraho region to be built during Chandela rule. It is believed to have been built by the Chandela King Madanavarman. The name Vasala is inscribed at several places in the temple, which has led to the popular belief that Vasala was the chief architect of the temple.   This temple too is worth a visit and when you have read about the history of the place, it automatically becomes all the more interesting. So go there after reading about it a little, and you will enjoy it all the more.
