About Sahastra Bahu Temples
Religion, Hindu Temples, Interesting Places
At Nagda in Rajasthan, stand the remains of the Sahasra Bahu temples of the early 10th century AD, dedicated to Vishnu. They are locally referred to as Sas Bahu temples (a local corruption of the original Sahasra-Bahu, meaning "One with thousand arms", a form of Vishnu). Nagda was once an important city of Mewar, possibly a capital of one of its rulers.
The temples are now in partial ruins but one can still marvel at their original splendour, the artisanry and the perfect geometry that must have been the hallmark of that era! Roads made with white marble are also an attraction of the village.
