The carving of the doorway is exceptionally fine, hale and hearty

Bajramath Temple is situated in Gyaraspur, about 40 Kms away from District Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh, on NH-146 behind the Sub-Judicial Magistrate and Tehsildar's Office Gyaraspur, temple is facing to the East and significantly it was a Hindu Temple, later it was transformed to Jain Temple. Indeed it is just opposite to the Hill on which Maladevi temple is situated.The Bajramath is a pretty illustration of a very rare grade of temples with three Sanctums placed closely and ambulatory or Pradakshina on the platform. All these sanctums now occupied by Jain idols belonging to the Digambara sect. But it is clear from the sculptures placed on the door frames and niches on the basement that originally these sanctums patronized the Hindu Trinity. More absolutely the central Sanctum was dedicated to Lord Surya, the southern to Lord Vishnu and the northern to Lord Shiva. The carving of the doorway is exceptionally fine and hale and hearty. The Dome of the temple is rare in its scheme and design.Now all the three sanctums are dedicated to Jain Tirthankaras, it also indicates that it was Hindus Religious place and later it might have been dominated by the Jains. Temple architecture is spectacular and an example of outstanding sculptor art and workmanship.Hindola Torana, Aath Khamba, Maladevi Temple, Mansarovar Lake and Buddhist Stupa on Dhenki Nath Hills all are nearby tourists attraction of great interest.
