Chausath Yogini Temple, near the famous Marble Rocks in Jabalpur, houses idols of 64 attendants of Goddess Durga, having the idol of Lord Shiva at the centre, surrounded by these idols.
Originally, there would have been a shrine, right at the centre of this structure, with an image of Bhairava. Today, in the sanctum stands an exquisite image of Uma-Maheshwara, seated together in an embrace.
Very interestingly, there are 81 niches holding images of the Yoginis here. Therefore, technically, this isn’t a Chausath (64) Yogini temple, but an 81-Yogini Temple.

I am increasingly noting that a number of Indian practices seems to hold learnings for #covid19 fight. Some ones I spotted on the thread. RT and add to the list, like to learn others such practices
#IndiaFightsCorona #AncientIndia #history (1/n)
Social distancing - Namaste (folded hands) as a greeting style rather than shaking hands (2/n) #IndiaFightsCorona #AncientIndia #history #COVID19outbreak
