About Devi Jagadambi Temple

The Jagadambi temple, so called after the image of Parvati now enshrined in the sanctum, was originally dedicated to Vishnu, as indicated by the prominence given to Vishnu on the sanctum-doorway. The temple stands on a lofty platform. The square ceiling of its maha-mandapa hall is much simpler than the octagonal ceiling of the Chitragupta temple, which thus appears to be relatively more ornate and evolved and therefore slightly later in datethan this temple. The sculptural embellishment of the Jagadambi is as rich as that of the best temples of Khajuraho.

Jagdambi temple is one of the famous Hindu temple in India. It is one of the most finely decorated temple in khajraho.In this hindu temple the shrine has enormous image of goddess deviand was designed as vishnu temple. The temples of Khajuraho were built by the rulers of the Chandella dynasty between the 10th and the 12th centuries.
