and is built of granite. It belongs to the western group of Khajuraho temples. This shrine is dedicated to the 64 yoginis or manifestations of the Mother Goddess Shakti
Raised on an immense platform is an open courtyard that is surrounded by miniature shrines for all the 64 manifestations of the goddess.
