Khumba Shyam Temple

Kumbha Shyam Temple, a beautiful Indo-Aryan style architecture temple dedicated to Varah, the boar incarnation of God Vishnu.

About the Temple :
Situated on the on the eastern side of Chittorgarh, the Kumbha Shyam Temple is dedicated to Varah, the Boar incarnation of Vishnu. This temple was erected by Maharana Kumbha on a base laid in the 9th century AD. A large image of Baroda, the mythical bird, is in front of the temple, under a canopy supported by pillars. A fine example of Indo-Aryan style of temple architecture, this temple has a soaring Shikra, a mandap (porch or pillared hall) covered with a stepped, pyramid-shaped roof, and a pardakshina (colonnaded walkway) around the sanctum. There is a small pavilion at each of the four corners. The sanctum has beautiful idols depicting Lord Vishnu in different moods, and carvings of life in the 15th century. It is believed that, originally, this temple was a Vishnu Varah temple but was destroyed during Mughal attacks.
