Matangeshwara Temple, located outside of the garden and near the entrance, is the only still active temple among the western group of Khajuraho temples. The faithful come to worship before a linga, 2.5 meters high. Comparatively lesser intricate carvings suggest Matangeshwar Temple is probably the youngest temple among other temples of the western group of Khajuraho temples. This temple was constructed between 900 AD-925 AD, by sand stones.

Matangeshwar Temple is located outside the Western Group of Khajuraho temples, though hardly a 5 minutes foot-walk away. Since, unlike many other Khajuraho temples, it’s still in everyday use, it has been kept outside fenced enclosure. Active Shiv Lingam worship can be observed here. One of the significant aspect of its architecture is that the pillars and walls are plane but the roof is intricately carved and sculpted. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Matangeshwar Temple has an 8 meter high lingam. South to this temple is an open-air archaeological museum which is actually an accumulation of a fine collection of works of statues and friezes of the region: the remains of the temples long gone. Earlier, this open air museum was called as Jardine Museum.
