Bateshwar Temples, Chambal Sanctuary

Must Visit

Apart from seeing the animals and birds in the Chambal Sanctuary, you can also take a journey to the Bateshwar Temples on the river Yamuna. The complex consists of more than a hundred temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. Bateshwar is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna and, so it is little wonder that there are several legends and myths associated with it.

The high ravines surrounding the temple complex is also home to a large number of Naga sadhus who stay in mud houses and caves found in this region.

The nearby Yamuna river and its surroundings are home to a range of resident and migratory birds such as kingfisher and pelican amongst others.

During the month of November, an annual animal fair is held at the open walls of the temple complex. The fair attracts saints, sadhus, tradesmen and villagers from around the region.
