Deogarh  Tour India

 Deogarh is situated on the right bank of the Betwa River at the end of the Lalitpur range of hills. The cliffs, immediately overhanging the bank rise to a height of 300 feet and form a long steep ridge of red sandstone. Deogarh is of great antiquarian, epigraphical and archaeological importance and has figured in the history of the Guptas, the Gujaras - the Pratiharas, the Gondas, the Muslim rulers of Delhi, and Kalpi, the Marathas and the British. The thickly forested hills around Deogarh harbors a variety of wildlife.

The jewel of Deogarh however is in afield by a well close to the hanks of the Betwa. This is the Dashavatar Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It belongs to the Gupta period and is dated to about the 6th century AD. It is the earliest known Panchayatan temple of north India. It bears an inscription attributable to Govinda, Viceroy of Malwa and brother ofthe great Kumargupta I. A row of superbly sculpted panels adorn the terraced basement which rises above the high plinth of the temple. A doorway with intricately carved figures of Ganga and Yamuna leads to the garbhagriha or sanctum sanctorum. The temple is particularly well known for its Rathika panels in recesses along its three side walls.
These fine stone reliefs depict scenes from Vaishnava mythology, and are identified as the Gajendra Moksh panel, Nar-Narayan Tapasya andtheAnantasayi Vishnu. Only the lower portion remains of the shikhar, once the most important part of the temple.
