Sirpur - Lakshmana Mandir

This is yet another ancient temple said to belong to seventh century built by the kings of Sarabhapura, with Sirpur as their capital. Later Buddhism held its away over this region and many temples were built to propagate their religion. Excavations reveal the predominance of Buddhist influence and it was testified by Huan-Tsang, who visited and recorded his observations in the seventh century. Among the extant brick temples, the most important one is dedicated to Lord Mahavishnu, but it is popular as Lakshmana temple. It was built by Vasantha, the queen mother of Mahasiva Gupta in the seventh century. The excellent sculptural artistry peeping at the viewers from every frame elevates them and joins their hands in veneration. The lintels adorned with the Seshasayi Vishnu figures and the panels rich with awe-some sculptural pieces draw admiration of art-critics and brought undying fame to the builders. The magnificent temple bears striking resemblance to the Rajivlochana temple at Rajim in both aesthetic embellishments and workmanship. Though in ruins, it casts an irresistible attraction on theists and artists. Its location on the river Mahanadi is another plus point it has to its credit and the cause for perennial attraction.

It lies in Sirpur in the Raipur district of Madhya Pradesh, accessible by bus from Raipur.
