The Kandariya Mahadev Temple is the most well preserved and the most gloriously sculpted temples in the Western group. From whichever angle you look, it is fascinating.

This is one of the temples to visit in the western group of temples. As other temples here, it has seen the wrath of some ruthless invaders and has ruined sculptures. The ASI has however restored as much as it can.
