However, research reveals that the Temple construction is believed to have commenced in the 11th century during the reign of the Paramara dynasty king Raja Bhoja. Rock stone engraving on nearby surrounding boulder reveals the elaborately proposed architectural plans for the vision of the completed construction. It is through these artefacts and after extensive study of other helpful material in the same field such as mason's marks and the unfinished materials abandoned at the site, scholars have arrived at the conclusion that this temple dates back to the 11th century.
The temple itself is no less than a rare specimen of the earliest possible instance of this temple based architectural style which was born out of central India. There are provisions for windows and doors on all sides and the specialized small segregated areas on these walls are designated for installation of statues there. The Bhojeshwar temple spire or dome tower however has succumbed to the test of time and is presently completely beyond retrieval.
