Chitragupta Temple
Chitragupta Temple is one of the oldest shrines in Khajuraho dedicated to Lord Surya that faces eastwards to the rising sun built in early 11th century. This scared landscape has an impressive 5 ft high image of Lord Surya in a standing posture with a chariot of seven horses. Built in early 11th century, The Chitragapta Temple is situated at the extreme northern end of a row of four temples, enlarging from south to north. It is believed that it is the only Khajuraho temple dedicated to Surya, the Sun God. The walls of this shrine have carved depicting voluptuous and full figured sura-sundaris, erotic couples. It really gives a special feast to the devotees that present three similar but smaller figures of Lord Surya.

It is believed that this temple, which is the only sun temple at Khajuraho, was built near to the tank. Lots of efforts have obviously been made at renovation, but it is not in as good condition as other temples. However it houses many different fine sculptures comprising processions, dancing girls, elephant fights and hunting scenes.

In the inner sanctum of this temple, Surya can be seen driving his chariot and seven horses, while in the south facade on the central niche, you can see an 11-headed statue of Vishnu himself ands rests are of the 10 others.
