About the Event

Bateshwar complex, spread in 10 hectares of land in ravines of Chambal near Morena District of Madhya Pradesh comprises of nearly 200 Hindu Temples. The shrines of Bateshwar temple-complex are dedicated mostly to Shiva and a few to Vishnu. The temples are made of sandstone and belong to the 8-10th century CE. They were built during the reign of Gurjara-Pratihara Dynasty, 300 years before Khajuraho temples were built. This complex was long forgotten and badly damaged with time. Shri K.K. Muhammed, then superintendent, Bhopal circle of Archaeological Survey of India took the responsibility of restoring it to its original glory in 2005. He had to take help of dacoits of Chambal to restore these temples and later faced heat of mining mafia.
This trip to Bateshwar will unveil many secrets as we visit Garhi Padhavali, Mitaoli, Kakanmath, Naresar and the Bateshwar of UP. If time permitted, we shall also visit Ater Fort and Sarai Jajau.
