The Chausath Yogini Temple near Morena is indeed a circular temple and was built during the reign of the Kachchhapaghata Dynasty.

Statement 2 is incorrect. The Chausath Yogini Temple is not the only circular temple in India.

The design of the Chausath Yogini Temple has been suggested to have inspired the Indian Parliament building in New Delhi. This is a popular belief and although there is no concrete evidence to support it, it is often mentioned in discussions about the temple and the Parliament building.
