This is a beautiful photograph of the Chausath Yogini temple which is located in Mitaoli village, near Padaoli in Morena district 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Gwalior, India. According to an inscription dated to 1323 CE (Vikram Samvat 1383), the temple was built by the Kachchhapaghata king Devapala (A.D 1055 – 1075). It is said that the temple was the venue of providing education in astrology and mathematics based on the transit of the Sun. This temple inspired Edwin Luyten to build the Indian Parliament. The Archaeological Survey of India has declared the temple an ancient and historical monument under Act No. LXXI of 1951, dt. 28/11/1951.
