This temple is on the way from bhedaghat to dhuandhar falls. One needs to climb around 100 big stairs to reach here. Its a round old temple with the idol of lord shiva and parvati sitting on nandi (instead of usual shiva lingam). Must visit to see this unique idol

You will need to climb lots of stairs that are quite steep to visit this temple. The uniqueness of this temple is that the main deity is a unique idol having the wedding post of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati sitting on Nandi. You will also get a good view from the top.

One has to climb about 150 steps to reach the temple on a hill in the heart of Bhedaghat. The temple has 64 exquisite sculptures of yoginis surrounding the images of Shiva and Parvati. You can get a good view of Bhedaghat from the hill top.

I visited the Temple at Dusk and when I had just damaged my expensive DSLR camera however the temple compound lighted with Diyas all around and its vastness, the antiquity of the temple itself and Goddess all created an ambiance where I felt humble and my mind was filled with joy. It is a lovely place to sit and enjoy.... More

Chausath Yogini Temple is one of the oldest heritage sites in India. It was built in the 10th Century AD by the Kalachuri kingdom and has a distinct resemblance to the temples of Khajuraho in structure. The temple is the abode of Goddess Durga along with 64 yoginis. A Yogini is a female attendant of the mother goddess.

Chausath is Hindi for Sixty Four and that's how many idols are there of various gods and goddess in this temple. It is said that the architecture of our parliament is based upon the shape of this temple :) It's a lengthy walk to the top, lot of steps, might be a bit tiring for the elderly but still it's...

I have been many times! It is such a fascinating space. The temple is of 81 Yoginis, even though there are now some Matrikas from an earlier temple also in the niches. The Yoginis are not in good shape but one can imagine the powerful and esoteric symbolism. The Shiva temple was not there in ancient times, it was added... More
