The Bajramath Temple is a rare and ancient temple located in Gyaraspur, Vidisha
. The temple consisting of three shrines that are placed abreast have Digambara Jain
idols in them. The architectural structures of the shrines are suggestive that originally these shrines were built to accommodate the Hindu
Trinity and the temple was later occupied by the Jains of the Digambara sect
. All these shrines now occupy Jain idols.
It is assumed that the Northern shrine of the temple was consigned to Lord Shiva
, the central one to Lord Brahma
and the shrine towards the south belonged to Lord Vishnu
. The carvings on the doorways are intricately beautiful and are dated back to 10th Century AD. The carving on the doorway is extraordinarily polished and vigorous. The Shikhara or the pinnacle of the temple is also worth mentionable in its unique plan and classy design.
