Khajuraho Travel Guide


Breaking all the prejudices of Hinduism banning sex and sensuality, Khajuraho Temples of Madhya Pradesh are famous all over the world for its explicit carvings. Many explanations have been given for the presence of erotic carvings in religious precincts - temples were meant to educate newly weds about sex; worldly desires have to be left outside to reach inner peace and emptiness that mark the inner sanctum of these temples; and even that the carvings denote that spiritual enlightenment can be found through sex. Whatever the case may be, Khajuraho Temples and its depiction of Kamasutra poses have been well photographed and covered by media all over the world.

The first capital of the Chandelas in the 9th century, Khajuraho got lost into anonymity by the 16th century. The temples in the city are divided into Eastern Group of Temples, Western Group of Temples and Southern Group of Temples. Kandariya Mahadeva of the Western Group is the largest and most ornate of all the temples at Khajuraho. The light and sound show organized here is in the evening is a must see.
