Visited the southern group of temples after 25 years. Restoration is about the best I have seen anywhere in India. Still needs a lot as the smell and bats inside the temples need to be removed and they need additional natural light inside if not artificial. But still as amazing as when I first saw them.

I'm so glad I couldn't buy a ticket to go to Varanasi because I wouldn't have gone to Khajuraho first. The village is quieter and not so touristy which is good. Foreigners pay a fee (250 rupees) and if you want to video camera you pay more. The temples are well-maintained and impressive. You can walk around the temples not... More

Khajuraho temples are breathtaking experience if you are history lover. Only 20 temples are remaining out of 170 temples built in there. Kandariya Mahadeva Temple and Lakshamana temple are best to watch. If you love travelling, adventure and historical monuments then you should go to Khajuraho, you will love it. It's a small place relaxing and quite.

Generally described as the karma sutra temples for the explicit erotic carvings, this is but one aspect of an amazing temple complex. Stunning, especially in the early morning or evening.

The temples are indeed impressive with incredibly delicate carvings (kama sutra being only a part of them, not necessarily the most interesting). The west group of temples, bring the one listed as World Heritage, and therefore gated and with entrance fee) is especially well maintained. The east group, beyond the old Khajuraho village, is free, less impressive and more dilapidated.... More

It talks very high of Indian architecture and civil construction in hudreds of centuries back. A very beautiful depiction of Bhartiya Sthapatya Kala and culture. The temples are famous for... More
