The main Temple is the Bhoramdeo Temple, built in stone. The architectural features with erotic sculptures have given a distinct style akin to the Khajuraho Temple and the Konarak Sun Temple in Odhisa. Hence, the Bhoramdeo complex is known by the sobriquet as the "Khajuraho of Chhattisgarh."
Another temple within a distance of about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from Bhoramdeo, mentioned along with the Bhoramdeo complex, is the Madwa Mahal, meaning marriage hall in a local dialect known as local dialect Dullhadeo. It was built in 1349 during the reign of Ramchandra Deo of the Nagavanshi dynasty and has a unique Shivan Linga erected over 16 pillars.
The temple complex, rich in history and archaeological details, is dated to the Kalachuri period (10th-12th centuries, one ruling over areas in Central India in west Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and were called Chedi or Haihaya (Heyheya) (northern branch)) with close identity with the sculptures found in nearby archaeological sites such as Janjgir, Kalachuri, Narayanpur and Ratanpur sites. The brick temples were built during the rule of Pandus and are similar to those built-in Kharod, Palari, Rajim, and Sirpur in the state.
The Temple was built by Laxman Dev Rai & Gopal Dev of the Faninagvansh Dynasty. The temple complex highlighted as a "scintillating poetry in stone," is credited to Nagwanshi Kings who practised tantrism and ruled in the then Southern Koshal region, which is now the state of Chhattisgarh. Its construction is dated between the 7th and 12th centuries. As the Gond Tribals of the area worshipped Lord Shiva, whom they called Bhoramdeo, the Temple was also named Bhoramdeo with the Shiva Linga exalted in it.
