Exuding the legacy of ancient dynasties that reigned over Jabalpur, Chausath Yogini Temple is one of the oldest temples. It was built in the 10th century by the rulers of the Kalchuri Dynasty and dedicated to Goddess Durga along with 64 yoginis.

Standing through the vagaries of time, Chausath Yogini Temple has witnessed Mughal invasions when it was damaged partially but still considered to be an impressive sight to behold for the tourists.

It is a circular temple built by Yuvaraj II of the Kalchuri dynasty. It comprises 81 yogini shrines instead of 64. Maa Narmada’s presence makes it adorable.Vigras survived jihadi attacks here too.
