Circa 200 metres to the northeast of the Brahma Temple, and built on a high plinth, sits the Vamana Temple. It is dedicated to the dwarf incarnation of Lord Vishnu in which he grows to become a giant so as to save the world from King Bali. However, there are also images of Brahma and Shiva with their consorts on the upper niches of the sanctum. The temple dates from 1050 - 1075 CE and is thus the second, chronologically, of the three Hindu temples forming the Eastern Group. There is no ambulatory. The exterior walls present the usual two bands of sculptures as well as erotic scenes that may be viewed on the roof pediments.

This photograph is very good. It has beautiful colors and good clarity. The depth of field is great and it has good perspective. Well done.
