Wow..Is what comes to my mind when memories of Khajuraho temples playback in my mind.If you want to see one of the best specimen on sculpture it has to be at Khajuraho. Each and every temple is unique. Please visit Khajuraho

We were there at 2pm and it was hot. We had no hassle from anyone trying to be an unofficial guide. We opted to hire the audio guide which was excellent .. Without it we would have missed a lot. The site is big but clean with good paths. There was a shop inside to buy cold drinks.

Khajuraho is an architectural masterpiece one should see with own eyes at least once. The temples of the Western Group are surrounded by a beautiful, clean and peaceful park where one can enjoy a walk while visiting the temples. It is not crowded and the atmosphere is relaxing and peaceful. Don't forget to have disposable socks with you, because you... More

The Khajurao Temples deserve to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The son et lumiere show in the evening was our first brush with the temple complex. We came back the next morning to get a closer, more intimate look. WOW! The walls of the temples are spectacular in their detail of everyday life - of human beings of... More

These temples were reclaimed from the jungle by the British in the late 19th century. They are all amazingly carved. This is the home of tantric yoga and the Kama Sutra so much of the carving is sexually orientated, but there are also many glimpses of everyday life.

These temples have to be seen to be believed. They are amazing. The delicate craftsmanship of the sculptures leaves one breathless. These are must see temples. I would rate them better than Ankor Wat.
