TAMRESVARI

The walls of the temple were decorated with sculptural representation, which included human figures, animals, birds, flowers, geometrical designs, etc. There was also the representation of mithuna (erotic) sculptures.

The temple of Tamresvari, which was once the flourishing center of tantric religion, is now seen only in ruins. It is not easy to reach the spot where we can see the remains of the temple without the aid of the people of the locality who are conversant with the place. We do not hear of human sacrifices made at the altars of the temple and this practice has been given up.
