Bhojpur Temple भोजपुर मंदिर

Bhojpur Temple  भोजपुर मंदिर
भोजेश्वर मंदिर भी अपनी अधूरी स्थिति के साथ एक अद्भुत संरचना है।  यह मंदिर भगवान शिव को समर्पित है जिसमें भारत के सबसे बड़े शिवलिंगों में से एक शिवलिंग प्रतिष्ठापित हैं।  गर्भगृह में स्थित 7.5 फुट लंबा और 17.8 फुट परिधि का यह शिवलिंग एक ही चट्टान को काटकर बनाया गया है जो आश्चर्यजनक है। अपने अपार और जटिल संरेखण में शिवलिंग के साथ, इस मंदिर को 'पूरब का सोमनाथ' होने का गौरव प्राप्त है।
भोजेश्वर मंदिर 11 सदी से 13 वीं सदी की मंदिर वास्तुकला का एक अद्वितीय उदाहरण है।  अगर यह मंदिर पूर्णरूप से निर्मित होता तो पुराने भारत का अपनी तरह का एक आश्चर्य होता है। मंदिर का पूरी तरह भराहुआ नक्काशीदार गुम्बद और पत्थर की संरचनाएं, जटिल नक्काशी से तैयार किये गए प्रवेश द्वार और उनके दोनों तरफ उत्कृष्टता से गढ़ी गई आकृतियाँ देखने वालों का स्वागत करती हैं।
मंदिर की बालकनियों को विशाल कोष्ठक और खंभों का सहारा दिया गया है। मंदिर की बाहरी दीवारों और ढाँचे को कभी बनाया ही नहीं गया। मंदिर को गुंबद के स्तर तक बढ़ाने के लिए इस्तेमाल किया गया मिट्टी का रैम्प अभी तक दिखाई पड़ता है, जो हमें इमारत निर्माण कला (चिनाई) में पुरातन बुद्धिमत्ता का स्वाद चखाता है।

Bhojpur Temple

Known as Somnath of the East, Bhojpur Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Located on the banks of the Vetraveti River in Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh, the temple gets its name from King Bhoj who once ruled the area surrounding the temple.
Also known as Bhojeshwar Temple, it was built atop a hill in Bhojpur village. The Shivling and the temple were commissioned by Raja Bhoj between 1010 and 1053 AD. However, the temple was never completed.
The stone Shivling is 7.5 ft tall and stands on a platform 21 ft tall. The Shivling has a circumference of about 18 ft. The Shivling is the largest stone structure carved out of a single rock in the world and also believed to be the tallest Shivling in a temple. To facilitate devotees from performing rituals, the Shivling is accessed by an iron staircase.
Also known as Somnath, the temple is of great importance due to the huge idol of Lord Shiva. The temple is under the Archaeological Survey of India.
Several stone sculptures adorn the temple’s dome, facade and pillars. The exquisite temple has four pillars that bear the weight of the huge stone dome. The lower part of the temple has eight corners and there are two very attractive idols at the entrance of the temple.
King Bhoj founded the Bhojpur village in the early years of the medieval period and commissioned the beautiful Shiva temple. The temple has been a major reason for making the town of Bhojpur famous in the region. There is also a giant dam near the temple that can be seen from the temple.
Built in accordance to Vastu Shastra, the temple’s entrance has an arch.  It is also believed that the temple was the first structure to have an arch. Locals believe, the temple was built by the Pandavs to worship Kunti
