Sas Bahu Temples

Sas Bahu Temples is a 10th century shrine at Nagda, 23 km north-west of Udaipur, in Rajasthan. The presiding deity here is Lord Vishnu. Sas(mother in law)-Bahu (daughter in law) is the name traditionally given to two adjoining temples of different sizes.

The temples are dedicated to the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. The Sas temple is larger than the temple of Bahu and has an archway (torana) in the front.

The temples are intricately carved and extensively garnished with attractive figures and sculptures. It is believed that the image of the Lord was swung from the torana accompanied by hymns on ceremonial occasions.
