Group of Temples
23° 46' 00'' N, 72° 51' 00'' E

These six temples are of Maitraka period. Each temple consists of a small sanctuary with an elaborate doorway. Carved details are mostly restricted to the sanctuary doorway and porch columns. The temples are datable to 8th century A.D.


Conservation and Preservation

As a result of settlement of ground, this group of two temples, constructed on a mound and dedicated to Lord Shiva and Vishnu, has suffered from development of vertical cracks and consequent tilt. In order to prevent further damage, and keep it in alignment and level, the Shiva Temple was first dismantled up to the ground level, and re-set as per original, including replacing broken architectural members with newly dressed Dhrangadhra stones. The work is in progress.
