‪On The way of Jungle Hilly road The Vishnu Temple (some sources refer to it as a Trimurti temple) at Gyaraspur is one example of the Kachchhapaghata style of architecture. Not much remains of this temple except the four pillars (Chaukhamba) of the central sanctum and a gateway (Hindola Torana).

Must have – Proper Shoes, Hat, umbrella. Here is no refreshment shop, so must have some snacks, water bottles with us.

Ticket- Not required

This Hindola Torna of Gyaraspur illustrates the Ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu. This unique specimen of stone craft has the sculptures of 5–5 incarnations of Vishnu on both pillars of Torna, along with the Yaksha-Yakshanis the mythical custodian of the temple mostly carved on pillar capitals, Goddesses etc. These incarnations are carved on all the four faces of pillars. The Matsya and Kachhap are jointly depicted in one direction of a pillar, the Vamana avatar in the other direction, the Varaha in the third and the Narasimha avatar in the fourth. Similarly, Parashurama, Rama and Krishna are inscribed on the second pillar. Lord Buddha considered the ninth incarnation of Vishnu according to Vaishnavites and Kalki incarnation the final or tenth one, who is awaited to end the Kalyug, who remove the immorality and steer to True or Golden Age, are carved together in the fourth direction.
Entrance gate transverses are finely carved with mythical figures, which are very attractive. A Buddhist Sun also can be noticed on these pillars, making the archway a masterpiece depicts Hindu and Buddhist architectural elements.
A lot of sculptures scattered, which are the structural segments of the temple are preserved in the premise. A four stone pillared structure, is drawing the visitors attention, built on an elevated platform seems to be the Sanctum of the temple.‬

‪Hindola Torana is located on the way to Maladevi temple. One can see here four pillars which mark the entrance to an ancient temple of which there are no remains. One can see beautiful carvings depicting the ten avatars of Lord Vishnu on the four pillars.‬

‪Beautiful swinging arch ruins on a site that you can easily walk around and find lovely little remains of sculptures, etc. The temple features ten images of Vishnu's avatars including a very beautiful boar reincarnation (Varaha) and fish (Matsya). Very picturesque but beware the rocks (wear proper shoes).‬

‪Gyaraspur, located about 35 km from Vidisha , in north east is a small town of significant historical importance. There are remains of few temples, a half-rock-cut and half structural Jain shrine and a Buddhist stupa as well. This shows the secular nature of this town in old days. Going up on the hill for Mala Devi temple , one can find Hindola Torana , belonging to a ruined Vishnu Temple , now known as Char Khamba , on left side . The temple faced east but the torana is on north south axis and provides access to the temple from south .

The square ( bhadraka ) pillars of the torana rest on a lotus socle ( padmapitha ) and base ( kumbhaka ) . On both the pillars ten incarnations Vishnu are intricately carved . On the eastern pillar , Matsya and Kurma are shown on the northern side , Kurma is shown sitting on Mandarachal mountain which was used to churn the ocean . Four celestial deities are shown on the top part of the panel . Varaha , shown in alidhasana posture, with four hands , carrying a gada (club) and sankha (conch) in two of his hands is to the west . One right hand is placed on his thighs in katyavalambita mudra and one left hand , shoulder of which is carrying Bhudevi , carries chakra (disc) . Bhudevi is sitting on at the arm with one of her hand on the muzzle of Varaha . Varaha's left feet is placed over a pedestal , beneath which are shown two fishes , symbolizing an ocean . The pose represents Varaha coming out of an ocean carrying the goddess on his shoulder . Narsimha in the sourthen niche is shown with four hands , two hands tearing the belly of Hiranyakashipu , who is placed on his thighs, and two upper hands were perhaps for holding the intestine as a garland . There is a prabha-valaya (halo) behind his head . Vamana to the east is shown unusually with four hands, carrying sankha , chakra , gada and padma . There is yajnopavita around his body , signifying his Brahmanical character .
On the western pillar , Parashurama in the sourthen niche is shown with two hands carrying a parasu ( axe ) and ankusha ( elephant's goad ) .
Rama carrying a danush ( bow ) on his left shoulder and a bana (arrow) in two hands is shown in the western niche . Hanumana is shown down right side in anjali mudra . Buddha and Kalki are in the northern niche . Buddha is shown standing, his robe is carved very beautifully . Right to him, down the base, is shown Kalki , riding on a horse and carrying a sword .
Perhaps Krishna is in the eastern niche , as he is shown standing crossed legs and it seems there is a snake hood above the head .

Above these there are two registers with mithunas , dancers and musicians , a narrow recessed band of diamonds separate the two registers . Next an ornament comprising of vase and foliage ( ghatpallava ) above entwined serpents ( nagapasha ) is topped by the kirtimukha and vyalas and a half diamond ( ardharatna ) with surrounding scroll ornament . Further up is the fluted portion ( bharana ) and next , atlantid ( kumara ) and vyala brackets .Upon these rest the attic pillars with amalaka capitals and brackets supporting architraves with leafy scrolls emanating from kirtimukha at the centre . Above this a row of deities in niches alternate with devotees and is topped by an upper row of figures with an overhanging gagaraka lacing .

Varaha is shown on the above central niche, while Bhudevi is shown seated on his shoulder . Below lintel shows many gods , demi-gods in various niches . The attractive makar-torana is made up of two full arches coming out of makaras on either side . The arches are made up of flying celestials, instead of flower-creepers . There is a void at the meeting point of the arches , which suggests that there might have been something , like a swing , attached to this at some time in that past.

bracket, on the top of the pillar . After thoroughly appreciating Hindola torana we moved to char khamba . The pillars of this mandapa are pretty heavily carved and topped with vyala , Lion and elephant brackets like capital . Apsaras are shown standing in between niches in various postures .

Our next destination was Maladevi temple .‬
