Deogarh

CENTRE STAGE OF THE GUPTA DYNASTY AND THE EVOLUTION OF JAINISM

DEOGARH

It had its place in glory during the rule of Gupta Dynasty, the Gurjara-Pratiharas, the Gondas, the Marathas and the Muslims rulers of Delhi. Here one finds the remains of a magnificent Dashavatar Temple dating back to the 5th Century. The Gupta period and several Jain temples from that time are a major attraction for tourists. The architecture of these temples displays a high level of craftsmanship. There are about 2000 sculptures at one place in Deogarh, which is probably the only collection of its kind in the world. It also houses the amazing rock cut caves at Siddha-ki-Gufa that can be traced back to the 6th Century. Going down the steep steps at Naharghati at the east end of the Deogarh Fort to the Betwa River is a memorable experience.
