Varaha as purely a boar
Jan 2020
This temple is dedicated to the araha or boar form of Vishnu. I remember this because the representation of Varaha is purely in animal form and the first time I’ve seen such a depiction rather than the anthropomorphic form. Other than that, the temple is a rather modest rectangular form with open plan of roof and plinth separated by columns.

This temple is amongst the first you’ll see as you enter the archaeological complex, so it’s worth a quick detour as a hors d'oeuvres before the main temples.

Another excellent temple
Feb 2020
This temple is one of the western group of Khajuraho temples. You must have a guide to make the most of this UNESCO site.
The temple is beautifully decorated and is set in a pleasant parkland setting near other temples.
If you are in Khajuraho you have probably come to see the temples. I recommend them.

Western group of temples
Mar 2019 • Couples
The Varaha temple is dedicated to the boar reincarnation of Lord Vishnu. On first look, the idol looks like an Elephant, but on closer inspection you realise that it is a boar. The temple is part of the Western temple complex and you can visit it by paying a common entry fee

A big wild boar
Mar 2019 • Friends
Initially when one steps into this temple which is in duplicate at the two ends of the entrance to the western temple complex, one would think this is an elephant. But on close inspection it appeared to be a boar. The entire body of the boar was inscribed with writings.
