About Bhojpur Temple in Bhopal

Bhojpur Temple is a large heritage temple of Lord Shiva in Raisen District in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The Shiva Temple has earned the title of the Somnath of the East and is called Bhojeshwar Temple.

History of Bhojpur Temple

It was founded by the Parmar king of Dhar, Raja Bhoj (1010-53) and was named after him. 28 km from Bhopal, Bhojpur is famous as an archeological site because of its magnificent remains of Shiva Temple and Cyclopean dam. King Bhoja built a series of dams to harvest water of nine rivers at the site of Bhojeshwar Temple in MP. 

The temple houses a 18-feet tall and 7-feet wide lingam. Bhojpur Mandir is a simple square with outside portion of 66 feet, there are no re-entrant angles usual domes, though it is incomplete but has a magnificent soaring strength of line and is supported by four pillars. Like dome the pillars are also massive but they retain a remarkable elegance due to their tapering form. The doorway is richly carved from above and from below it is plain throwing sharp relief against the two exquisitely sculpted figures that stand on the either side. The other three sides are balconies each supported by massive brackets and four intricately carved pillars.

Due to reason unknown the temple was not completed and the earthen ramp used to raise it to dome level still stands. If it would have been completed than definitely it would have been a masterpiece of its kind, and would have had no comparison to any other, anywhere in the world. Bhojeshwar Temple is one of the finest examples of temple architecture of the12th and 13th centuries.

Bhojpur Temple in Bhopal also have a few unfinished statues of Shantinath,  Suparshvanatha, and Parshwanath in a Jain Temple.
