Chausath Yogini Mitawali Temple is a very unique and magnificent temple of ancient Indian architecture with a circular plan. Generally the tops of most of the temples are in the shape of a conical shikhar.

The Parliament House of India is believed to be inspired by the architecture of the Yogini Temple, which was designed by British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker in 1912–1913. But there is no credible written evidence that the Indian Parliament building was inspired by the temple architecture.

There are 17-17 pillars in the inner circle of the mandapa, 64-64 pillars in the outer circle. There are a total of 5 circumambulation paths in the inner part of the temple. There are 64 cells along the outermost path, in which most of the Shivling is seated, but there is no Yogini presence in any of the cells. Due to the presence of Yoginis in these 64 cells, the name of the temple is also known as Chausath Yogini Temple.

Yogini is specially worshiped for attainment of accomplishment under Tantra Sadhana. According to local belief, some Tantra Siddha devotees still visit the temple secretly to complete the spiritual practices.

The arrangement of restaurants or eateries around the temple is negligible. To reach the temple above, one has to go through stairs, the number of stairs is not even more, an ordinary fit person can climb up within 5 minutes, although there is no shade due to excessive sun or hot weather, water will be taken with him.
