Vamana Temple



vamana-temple-khajurahoThe Path from the Brahma Temple leads north to the Vamana Temple enclosure. The temples looks out on the surrounding feilds and every season it has a different aspect, whether against a foreground of a ripening green crop or the golden - yellow harvest. The temples is of mediun size and the western group. Unfortunately the porch of the temple has collapsed, and without it tooks a little stunted. It measures 19.1 meters in lenght and 13.9 meters in breath ( while the Devi Jagadambi is 23.4 meters long and 14.9 meters wide)

The vamana temple consist of a mandap and garbha graha which contains the drawf images of vamana, an incarnation of vishnu. According to the myth, there was once a haughty king and vishnu assumed the form od dwarf or Vamana to teach him a lesson. He requested the proud (hence foolish) king for just so much land as he could cover with three strides. The king granted the request and vishnu took one step and covered the earth, with the second step he strode across the heavens and had nowhere to place his third step. The despotic king realized his mistake, begged forgiveness and requested vishnu - Vamana to place his third step on his head as a mark of his submission to god. Vamana Temple is dedicated to the dwarf incarnation of Vishnu.

Around the temple are two band of sculptures with almost 3000 figures, though this is only half the number to be found in any of the larger temples of the western Group. Here too the sculptural scheme continues with a blend of gods, their consorts, female figures and mythical creatures.
