Duladeo Temples, Khajuraho



Dulha Deo Temple khajuraho
Duladeo Temples: The temple, judging from a 1904 photograph, was severely damaged; its shikhara had all but collapsed and the mandap roof caved in, but the entire porch and a wide open madap with an amazing circular corbelled inner replicas. The dancing figures on the pillars and pilasters of the mandap are noteworthy for their vigour and energetic stances.
The temple is also called the kunwar math, and along with the term Dula is associated with notion of the Bridegroom's temple. The exterior walls of the temples have repeated the images of the Divine Bridegroom and his consort. The western wall, which is the part of the temple that is better preserved, has three distinct bands of sculpture. The top most level is decorated with celestial musicians and garland bearers, the next two lower levels have magnificent images of shiva the Bridegroom, the other deities, mythical creatures; and in the deep recesses are portrayals of lovers and maithuna couples. The sculptures of the duladeo temple are refined, slim and well -proportioned. The figures, both men and women wear jewellery here than in any other temples in Khajuraho.

The plan of the temples is exaggerated and has assumed a star - shape with clear angles, shadowy recesses and clear-cut projections. The shikhara begins its upward journey from a transitional bas of small shikharas, and then rises up in a dramatic conical form surrounded by miniature replicas of itelf along the sides. This temple is considered by historians to be one of the the last monuments to be built in khajuraho.
