“exotic quiet India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Chirping and other jungle sounds are the only noise you will hear. Many Tiny villages with ancient tribes that even National Geographic would want to visit. Bhoramdeo Jungle retreat is run by Sunny. An excellent host and guide that cateers to Westerners needs. Peaceful sleeping quarters, clean with real bathrooms and good showers. Meals are included and delicious.
I have been twice. THe local temple is set on a lake filled with lotus flowers and the local tribal people use this for daily rituals.
Sunny will take you to local outdoor markets and many different villages you'd never see on your own.Ask about the drummers and dancers. Bring comfortable shoes for the dirt roads you may walk on and your camera of course.

“stunning, remarkably well preserved 1300 year old temple with erotic carvings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

130 kms from Raipur (nearest airport and main railway station) the drive to bhoramdeo temple is scenic with verdant landscape so typical of the indian state of chhattisgarh. Roads are good and if one starts early one can even return to raipur for lunch and for planning other day trips to sirpur etc. Surrounded on three sides by hills and adjacent to a lake the temple has exquisite sculptures adorning its walls, quite a few of them erotic (like khajuraho). The place is calm ,surrounded by greenery and well maint. Some more ancient temples are close by and one(mandwa mahal) of them is worth a visit. No need to stay back unless visiting the wildlife sanctuary; though a tourism resort and kawardha palace resort are nearby and considered good ,the later being a bit pricey. Light snacks and bottled water is available at nearby stalls and the tourism deptt restaurant. Take a binocular for a closer look at the beautiful carvings on the 'shikhar' of the temple and of course a camera with a zoom for capturing the sensuous beauty in stone.Winter season is the best to visit and take precautionary gear in summers. Ramps are not available for wheel chairs. No comments on informatory services at the tourism deptts outlet.

“Older than Khajuraho”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Brilliant exotic stone carvings, the temple is 100 years older than the more famous ones, as well as headstones from fallen warriors, though these have been defaced by invading muslim armies.

“Older than Khajarao”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

The temple was very interesting with sensual sculptures and a little lake. A interesting legend linking the Kawardha kings adds an air of mystery.
