ⓘ Chausath Yogini Temple, Jabalpur

Chausath Yogini Temple is one of the oldest heritage sites in India. It was built in the 10th Century AD by the Kalachuri kingdom and has a distinct resemblance to the temples of Khajuraho in structure. The temple is the abode of Goddess Durga along with 64 yoginis. A Yogini is a female attendant of the mother goddess, who slays illusion with fiery passion through insight and liberation. It is located near the river Narmada and the famous Marble Rocks in Bhedaghat, some 5 km from Jabalpur, Madhya pradesh. Though the temple has been partially damaged, it speaks greatly of the ancient dynasties that ruled in Jabalpur.
