Sas Bahu Temple

A 9th century shrine, the Saas-Bahu temple in the fort allures not only the devotees but also the visitors with its artistic value. Although the name indicates a connection, these temples are not dedicated to Sas (mother-in-law) and Bahu (daughter-in-law) but rather a popular derivation of Sahastra-bahu, another name of the ‘thousand-armed’ Lord Vishnu.

 

These temples are situated adjacent to each other and are similar in style. The larger one is elaborately decorated with beautiful carvings and sculptures of the deity. The roof of the larger temple is adorned with a marvellous lotus carving which is very fascinating. These ancient temples display exceptional architectural brilliance and are definitely worth a visit.
