Bundelkhand Diary | Kalinjar Fort | Neelkanth Temple | S01E03

Kalinjar is a fortress city in the Bundelkhand region of central India. It  is located in Banda District of Uttar Pradesh state, near the temple city and World Heritage Site of Khajuraho.

After exploring Ajaygarh  we went to Kalinjar.

It served several of Bundelkhand's ruling dynasties, including the Chandela dynasty of Rajputs in the 10th century, and the Solankis of Rewa. The fortress contains several temples dating as far back as the Gupta dynasty of the 3rd-5th centuries.

Neelkanth Templeis  one of the famous and religious site in this fort. Here  we have seen some amazing stone carvings and rock cut tanks. We also witness the Evening Aarti of Neelkanth Mahadev.
