Beejamandal Temple is located in Vidisha in Khajuraho. The temple is distinguished by the presence of a white stone at the top of the complex. The splendid architecture of the temple displays an Indonesian or south-east Asian style.

There is a tradition of lighting a holy lamp in this temple each night. It has been a practice of the villagers staying near the temple to light the holy oil-lamp every night inside the temple complex. This practice has continued for ages now. The temple was originally built to honor and worship the Hindu deities, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

The original temple is in ruins now. But from the remaining structure it can be seen that the temple had highly decorated exterior walls. These walls had carvings of various animals. The interiors of the temple had carved images of human forms in several vivid postures.
