Khajuraho Travel Guide

Khajuraho tour guideWelcome to Khajuraho - the Temple City of India. Khajuraho is globally famous for its elegantly engraved temples in stones. Tourists from all over the world come here to witness this immortal saga of Hindu art and culture sophisticatedly engraved in stone. When talking about temple architecture, the name of Khajuraho ranks top. Temples here are architecturally very beautiful & perfect and never fail to impress its visitors. The most major attraction of Khajuraho is, no doubt, its erotic sculptures engraved elegantly on the temples. Rightly engraved sculptures of full-bodied women in erotic postures on the temples portray the vista from Kamasutra - the archaic Indian erotica. That’s why the temples of Khajuraho are called the Temples of Love.

Apart from temple complexes - extremely famous for their outstanding architectural beauty and rightly engraved sculptures, at present, Khajuraho is just a small village in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. But, in ancient time, a thousand years back, Khajuraho was a big city and the capital of the Chandelas, Rajput Kings of middle ages who governed over Central India from the 10th to 12th century. Initially, there were over 80 temples in Khajuraho, but at present only 22 temples are standing in a realistic condition of preservation. These temples are dispersed over an area of around twenty-one square kilometer (21 km2 ).
