Temples serve as institutions for the preservation of knowledge and as places of memory where one can encounter the voices of numerous people and groups who have tried to leave their mark on these places throughout the years. The Bajramath temple is also one of them, which was built under the patronage of the Kachcchapaghata dynasty in the 10th century at Gyaraspur, District, Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh.
In this lecture, I will discuss the architectural and iconographic eatures of Bajramath in a detailed manner and bringing out its significant historical aspects in religious, political, cultural settings and the process of the religious transformation of the temple from Brahmanical to Jain affiliation.
