Kalika Mata Temple, Pavagadh

This ancient temple is located at the top of Pavagadh Hill within the Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park.



The temple can be reached either by a pathway climbing over a distance of 5 kms or by a ropeway.



The small and plain temple is set amidst fortifications. It dates back to 11th century and has 3 images of the Goddesses: Kalika Mata, flanked by Kali on the right and Bahucharamata on the left.

This temple is definitely fortified up there on that hill. Quite the climb for the tourist. Has there ever been a tally taken of all the temples that still exist in India. I would really be curious. It must be in the thousands.
