Javari Temple is a beautiful shrine in Khajuraho, noted for its distinct architecture. This temple, counted amongst the most beautiful shrines of the Eastern Group of Khajuraho Temples, is situated about 200 metres towards the south of the Vamana Temple. It is assumed that since there is no Hindu deity bearing this appellation, this temple might have been named 'Javari' after the one time owner of the land on which it is built.

Architecturally, it is a small yet beautiful nirandhara temple that comprises a sanctum, mandapa, portico and vestibule. There are beautiful carvings on the temple walls that are representative of the artistic expertise of the era bygone.
