The Chandellas were devoted worshipers of both Vishnu and Siva. Vishnu is variously worshipped as Vaikunthanatha, Vamana, Trivikrama, Lakshmana, Adimurti, Hayagriva, Lakshmi-Narayana, Saurya-Narayana, Krishna, Visvarupa and so on. The Lakshmana, Vamana and Javari temples of Khajuraho are dedicated to Vishnu."This work aims at presenting a detailed and systematic study of sculptures and iconography of Vishnu in particular based on Puranas and other ancient texts. This is a comprehensive study on the iconography of Vishnu with all the relevant details including major and minor forms of Vishnu. Although some books on sculptures have been published but there prevailed a lacuna as far as comprehensive work on Vaishnavite sculpture the iconographic point of view."
