More Information about  Baroli Temple

Baroli Temple is located  in Rawatbhata Chittorgarh District Rajasthan.The Temple was built in 8th century and built by Hun Rulers.The complex of eight temples is situated within a walled enclosure; an additional temple is about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) away. They are built in the Pratihara style of temple architecture dated to the tenth century A.D. All nine temples are under the control of the Archaeological Survey of India for conservation and protection.

The temples are made out of soft sandstone (similar to that used in Chittaurgarh's Vijay Stambh) but the architecture and artwork reminds one of the Hemadpanthi and Chalukyan Temples found in the Deccan. The temples, unlike other monuments in Rajasthan are located in midst of dense green trees and lawns.

The fact that this complex is dominated by Shiva becomes evident due to a large Nandi Bull just in front of the temple. The name Ghateshwar Mahadev comes from the ghata (pot) installed at the shikara (pinnacle), nested on a lotus. It is there because one of its the phalic manifestations of Shiva (linga) looks so when inverted. I could not exactly imagine the same.
