There is nothing to watch at Saas Bahu temple. I must say that avoid Sas Bahu temple as you will waste your precious time there.

The temples are really lovely and alongside a beautiful lake. A wonderfully peaceful respite from the traffic he'll of Udaipur. We saw a pelican, an ibid and pied kingfishers so when you go don't forget your binoculars

The Sas-Bahu Temple complex is a hidden gem. It is mix of ruins and standing structures. The temple carvings will remind you of those at Khajuraho. There is no idol left in the temple, so not much crowd around, but the remains tell the story of what it would have been at it's glory before it was destroyed. It is... More

This is a tucked away gem. If visiting Udaipur, you must make a pit stop at these temple ruins. Dating back to the early 10th century AD, amusingly these have come to be known as Saas Bahu (meaning mother-in-law and daughter-in-law) temples, a surprising corruption of the original name, 'Sahastra Bahu' meaning 'one with a thousand arms'; a form of...

The Sas-Bahu Temple complex is a mix of ruins and still standing structures. There are some intricate carvings on the structures which are still standing. The carvings are similar to those at Khajuraho. The Sas-Bahu Temple complex is very neat and clean. The temple is located next to a lake on the way to the Eklingji Temple from Udaipur. It... More

The actual name of the temple is Sahasra Bahoo (100 arms) but slowly with age has gone to be known as Sas-Bahu We got a local guide to show us the place and he gave a wonderful story of the temple. Even showed and explained each and every stonecraft work on the ruins

This temple is located around 30 odd kms from Udaipur and about 2 kms from eklingji temple. Almost 70-80% of the temple is destroyed and it has no idols and thus no pujaris as well and because of this not many people visit this place which makes this a peaceful place. There is a lake in front of it.

There is a wonderful feel to this place. A temple robbed of its treasures, but still gives you an idea of how majestic this used to be. A wonderful place to spend an hour or two. Take along some food and have a nice evening or lunch there. You will enjoy the quiet surroundings. You are welcome to take the... More
