Matangeshwar Temple

Welcome to Matangeshwar Temple

 The simplicity of the Matangeshwar temple, located behind the gates of the complex, indicates that this is one of the oldest structures in Khajuraho, but although the temple was built in the early 10th century, it remains permanently active. Deep balconies are issued from the walls of its round sanctuary, inside which the shivalingas in the form of a column rise from the pedestal of yoni - a recurring symbol of the unity of Shiva and his wife. During the annual Shivrathri festival, the great wedding of Shiva and Parvati, the shrine buzzes like a beehive, attracting pilgrims at ceremonies returning to the distant past of Khajuraho.
