Shri Khajuraho Teerth

Shri Khajuraho Teerth is situated on the banks of Khudar River, near the historic town of Khajuraho. Managed by a trust called Shri Digambar Jain Atishay kshetra, the temple enshrines a red-colored stone idol of Shri Shantinath Bhagvan in the kayotsarg posture. It was constructed during the reign of Chandel King Shri Dhang by respectable Jain Shreshthi Shri Pahil. Carvings of Samvat 1085 are present at the bottom of the main deity. A well-equipped dharamshala is present near the temple.
