However, Vaman is traditionally not worshipped. The temple is located quite close to the Chaturbhuj Temple. The walls have exquisite sculptures, including erotica. The surrounding gardens... More

Vamana (dwarf) is one of the incarnations of Vishnu. This simple but large temple in the Eastern group stands in a field cut off from the other temples. Worth a visit if you are planning to check out the Eastern temples.

Vamana Temple is dedicated to the Vamana incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The temple was built between 1050-1075 AD and has a grand view. Carvings of gods and goddess are in attractive gestures and erotic images are worthseeing. It is also on a high platform and has exotic view. Vamana temple is most probably the largest temples of south group. Better... More

Located in the East of Khajuraho, on the up-north is a stand-alone temple. Mostly damaged sculptures since not well protected.

We visited this temple early morning when the sun light was slowly illuminating the beautifully carved temple and the statue of Vamana. I think pictures speak louder than words so I would post a few pics so you can view the grandeur of this temple, located in the eastern group of temples.

Dedicated to the Vamana avatar of Vishnu, this temple is away from the main complex. It has an vertical ascent similar to that of the Javari and sculpture equally rich in detail.
