The temple is dedicated to a goddess named Harshat Mata, it was built in the early 9th century, shortly after the construction of the adjoining Chand Baori stepwell. When we visited the temple, the temperature was more than 46 degrees Centigrade. It was very painful to go bare foot inside the temple and wear the shoes again, but the Goddess gives power to do so. We were surprised to see the Pujari sitting and serving the devotees in in the very hot summer. The temple is ruined by Muslim invaders in the past and only some parts of the main shrine now survive. Most of the carved stones are lying there and most of the sculptures have been shifted to the museums in Amber and Jaipur.

Standing next to the amazing Abhaneri Stepwell, this gem of a temple is so well worth a visit too.
It is absolutely ancient, over a thousand years old I think, but it is in remarkable condition.
A Holy man sits in the inner sanctum offering blessings. You are free to enter and to wandercariund this absolute delight.

The ticket to the amazing Chand Baori (Step well) buys you also the entry to this beautiful temple. It is enjoyable to visit and enchanting. Easier to comprehend without being overwhelmed. Beautiful structure. Well balanced. Interesting. You will be glad you came.

We went to visit this Temple on our way to Agra, can't say we were really impressed as we have seen some beautiful Temples up to now on this tour. It was destroyed by the Mughals.

Having made a detour on our way from Jaipur to Gwalior to see Chand Baori, the Harshat Mata Temple was a free bonus and pleasant surprise.
Over 1,000 years old, it was thoroughly destroyed by Muslim conquerors ; in its current format it probably doesn't look anything like the original (the domes certainly weren't there). But there are still plenty of marvelous carvings around the site to make it an interesting place to spend an hour and take some great pictures.

This place is really interesting, if you like photography or old stone carvings. The good thing is it is only 50 m away from the step well, so if you’re going to step well you’re very late likely go here anyway. You only need 15 minutes additional, so well worth it make sure you go especially if you’re a photographer.

Next to Chand Baori is Harshat Mata Temple. While it's in ruins very badly destroyed by Mughals it's worth a visit to experience the work of art on stones.

Its an awesome experience to visit the temple which is the shadow of our glorious past. The ruins give your brain the exercise to imagine what the past would have been. The view is beautiful with the open surroundings.

Harshad mata temple is visited by all those hosting Chand bowri in Abhaneri Rajasthan. The temple is located in old rock structure and worth a visit.
