Chaturbhuj temple - Orchha, Madhya Pradesh









Orchha is a small town (actually it looked more like a village) in Madhya Pradesh, central India. There are plenty of temples and forts in Orchha, some in ruins and poorly maintained but they are definitely a scene of breathtaking beauty. An example is the Chaturbhuj temple which is an ancient temple built during the 9th century. It looked somewhat neglected. When we went it was drizzling and we couldn't explore it thoroughly because it was kind of deserted and didn't appear quite safe to venture alone.
