This temple dedicated to Shiva is one of the finest achievements of Khajuraho. It was surrounded by four small sanctuaries of which only two survived. The Vishwanath Temple had in it once the symbol of Shiva made of emerald. Inside the temple, an inscription refers two lingas, one of emerald, the other one of stone, allegedly sheltered by Vishwanath Temple. The corridors of the temple are guarded by the figures of lions and elephants. The figures of Brahma, the Creator-God among the Hindu Trinity, and his consort, on a wall, are impressive. It was built in the year 1002 AD by King Dhang Deo. This temple is made in Panchaytan style of temple architecture and layout.

Vishwanath Temple is almost similar to Kandariya Mahadeo temple as far as layout plan is concerned. Lions & elephants flank stairsteps to the temple from north to south. The exteriors are richly carved. Facing the shrine is a temple of Nandi with a massive, 6 m high Nandi Bull.
