Close to the banks of the Falgu River south of town, this stone-spired temple was constructed in 1787 by Queen Ahilyabai of Madhya Pradesh and houses a 40cm ‘footprint’ of Vishnu imprinted into solid rock. Non-Hindus are not allowed entry. Along the ghats on the river’s edge, Hindus bathe and light funeral pyres; be discreet if you visit.
