About Sas-Bahu Temple

The Sas-Bahu Temple is unique in its name, history, and architecture. The temple is 32 meters long and 22 meters wide, with three gateways facing three different directions. A room on the fourth side is kept locked at all times. This magnificent temple is home to intricately carved idols of Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva at the doorway. The name of the temple comes from the word “Sahastrabahu,” meaning a man with a thousand hands, denoting Lord Vishnu. As for its history, legend says that the wife of the king of Kachchhwaha dynasty was a devotee of Lord Vishnu, while her daughter-in-law worshiped Lord Shiva. In order to facilitate the devotion of both the women, two temples were built, one after the other. As these women shared a relationship of mother-in–law and daughter-in-law, it came to be known as the SasBahu temple. It was constructed in the year 1092 by King Mahipala of the Kachchhwaha dynasty.
