This breathtakingly beautiful temple is off the Bamitha Road near the Airport. The backdrop of the Lavanya Hills and the amazing view of the sunset makes this one of the most beautiful temples here. More like the eastern temples, this temple is dedicated to the combined gods Hari- Hara. The architecture and design of this temple is unique with a shallow porch and pointed roof. The extraordinary carvings and architecture of this temple makes it stand out absolutely. Also, this is a lone temple standing on a raised platform and is a symbol of peace and serenity. There is a small lawn or ground area which might have been a garden at some point of time.This place is utilized by tourists as a place to relax and spend lazy afternoons.

Reviews of Chaturbhuj Temple • 4
The Chaturbhuj temple is a maze like structure with winding stairs leading you to the terrace that offers a bird eye view of the entire town. All the forts and temples around this small town are visible from this vantage point and amidst the shadows of the temple towers we spent hours watching the entire city going about the day at it's own pace.
Later on this this day, Chaturbhuj Temple was the next stop. This temple at the heart of the town is surrounded by small yet exceptional local shops and eateries that call for a much needed food tour around Orchha before you visit the temple.
Built upon a colossal stone foundation and approached by an abrupt flight of steps, the temple was particularly built to preserve the image of Ram which, however, remained in the Ram Raja Temple. Lotus symbols of pious prominence deliver the subtle outside decoration.
It's an old temple from the 9th century. It is the largest temple of Orchha.
