Exquisite, eloquent, and detailed depictions of lovemaking carved in sheer stone, some of the finest in the world. Khajuraho is home to a magnificent complex of 25 temples dating back to the 8th-9th centuries CE, all built by the Chandela dynasty. The temples, together a UNESCO World Heritage Site, showcase outstanding sculptures and extraordinary architectural skill, depicting – apart from erotic art – meditation, spiritual teachings, kinship, wrestling, and royalty. There are three temple groups: Western, Eastern, and Southern, all situated within a walking distance of each other.
Khajuraho town itself bears a wordly character with travellers arriving from all over the world and small restaurants serving wide ranging world cuisines. Travellers enjoy the Sound and Light show in the garden of the Western Group of Temples and Visit the Museums – ASI Museum, Jain Museum, and State Museum of Tribal and Folk Art. The Khajuraho Dance Festival held every year in February-March sees India’s finest exponents of classical dance perform against the spectacular backdrop of the floodlit temples. Its a must visit experience.
