Up on Bandavgarh hill is this amazing 35 foot long, 10th century statue of reclining Lord Vishnu with the Shesh Naag at his head. This important archeological monument has been restored in 2022 by INTACH.

A visual delight, surrounded by shaded trees, high up on the sandstone Bandhavgarh hill, this is a must visit in the Tala Zone of Bandhavgarh.

Nearby is the natural spring source of the Chakradhara stream which creates a fountain-like effect around the statue. The stream goes on to provide water through the year to most of Tala.

Don’t miss this important ancient monument during your visit.

Must visit. They have recently cleaned it and it looks beautiful. You must try and visit early in the day to avoid traffic.

We visited Shesh Shaiya, a stunning monument of Lor Vishnu resting with the Sheshnaag at his head. However, what was supposed to be a structure of the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh along with Goddess Lakshmi, is now incomplete due to lack of care and neglect. I was surprised to know that there are no government or private agencies that are interested in looking after it. The statue of Brahma has disappeared as has the statue of Goddess Lakshmi.

What remains is still hauntingly beautiful and peaceful. Nestled at the edge of a small pool of water, Lord Vishnu lies in his resting position in a glorious 35 foot structure. There are some inscriptions on the wall at the back of the structure but no one knows what they mean because no one has ever bothered to study them.

It is of immense importance that such an important and interesting piece of our country's cultural history be preserved. If anyone who reads this review, knows of ways that we can help save the monument, please reply.

This place is high up on a hill and requires a steep climb. But the visit is worth it! The 35 feet reclining statue of Lord Vishnu with Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma on either side...is as old as our history. There is a perennial spring from the feet which fills up the lovely pool in front giving the whole place a mesmerising look. This is the only place in the park where you are allowed to get off your vehicle.

Calm nature and beautiful scenery are the main attraction of this place. The huge size of the statue is indeed an attraction.
