It has the fabulous architecture that can have one admiring it for long and there are lotus emblems and other symbols carved around the shrine. The temple stands high and one has to climb the flight of stairs to the temple.

A royal couple Madhukar Shah Ju Dev (Devotee of Lord Vishnu) and Ganesh Kumari (Devotee of Lord Ram) had great affection for the lords. The queen visited Ayodhya leaving Orchha promising she would return on Lord Ram’s presence with her. She asked her servants to build the temple, which later became the Chaturbhuj temple. Lord Rama appeared in child form and the queen returned to Orchha. She then temporarily placed Lord Rama’s image in the palace but then the image got transfixed there and Lord Vishnu’s idol was installed in the Chaturbhuj temple. The temple is situated in Orchha, Tikamgarh, Madhya Pradesh.

The Orchha region sprawls between Jhansi and Khajuraho. The bus and road transport facility is available from the nearby cities of Orchha. Jhansi is the nearest railway station and is also a major junction in India. The nearest airport to the temple is Khajuraho and Gwalior that connects several airlines to major cities. The best and most ideal time to visit the temple is during the month of November when there is the Karthik Purnima celebrations. The Chaturbhuj temple is indeed a beautiful and an astounding one and a must visit for any devotee of Lord Krishna and Lord Ram.
