The altar of this temple is constructed in the shape of a yoni or vulva while its inner sanctum is similar to a Tantrik cult.

The structural of this temple is a rectangular one with four multi-faced projecting bastions at its four corners. It has been built with lime mortar and bricks, with slots for cannons used during the wars. Its main attractions are the ancient mural wall paintings present in the interior of this temple, which reflect a mix of Mughal and Bundela painting styles.

The carved designs of the temple have been arranged in a geometrical form and below these designs are vistas from the time of Lord Krishna decorated with animal and flower patterns.

      The Laxmi Temple

      Laxmi Narayan Temple had been one of the religious place for Bundel kingdom. The temple is located on southwest side of Orchha village. The temple has beautiful architecture and location. People still go there to pay rituals however it is not operational like Chaturbhuj or Rajaram Temple. One hour is enough to spend.
