Brahma Temple, an architectural marvel, is an intrinsic part of the Eastern Group of Khajuraho Temples. Built in AD 900, it is renowned for being one of the oldest structures in this temple complex.

It is located on the banks of Khajur Lake or Khajuraho Sagar. The temple is believed to be named after the Hindu Lord Brahma owing to the presence of a four-faced linga in the sanctum that represents the Creator of the World. However, historians are of the view that the temple was wrongly named, and it was actually dedicated to the Hindu Lord Vishnu.

The reason for this belief is the presence of Vishnu’s image on the lintel of the door of the sanctum. Adding to the marvellous architecture of the sanctum is a pyramid-shaped sikhara or apex. Constructed using sandstone and granite, the temple is beautiful and awe-inspiring.
