Ancient Temples of Kalachuri Period

The Ancient Temples of Kalachuri Period were constructed under the supervision of Kalachuri Maharaja Karnadeva (1042 – 1072 AD). They reflect the sheer brilliance of the Kalachuri architecture that is also to be seen in temples like the Pataleshwar Mahadev Temple and the Machhendranath Temple. The temples are currently under the supervision of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and are located just behind the Narmada temple in Amarkantak and the temple complex is one of the region’s most popular tourist destinations.
