Loved the temple but you could skip this one due to its out of the way distance from the Taj and the Golden Triangle. Too difficult to get to. The village has little of interest. Just not worth the effort.

After reading so many stories and 100's of articles about this place, fortunately i could able to visit khajuraho. A small town with so much simplicity, calm and peace. It was a road trip through CAR from Delhi via Morena, Gwalior, Jhansi, Orcha to Khajuraho. I visited Western as well as the Eastern group of temples. Seriously the Temples are... More

Beauty of Khajuraho temples has been spoken so much that I would like to share a different perspective. 1. There is a daily train (12448) and 2 flights from Delhi (must book in advance). 2. Do the return leg via Orcha to Jhansi (takes 4 hours by road) 3. Khajuraho is a compact, neat & clean place. Cafes are nice.... More

There is no way to begin to describe these temples and their carvings. You have to go here (it is out of the way) to see for yourself. Do not take small children! We were here during the annual dance festival (free) in late Feb, so do that if you are here then. The vendors are aggressive in the streets!

We did the Western group of temples first. We went late in the day to avoid the crowds. We skipped the guide option because the cost was more than what we paid for our room. Did the much less expensive audio tour. Although the erotic carvings make up only 10 percent of the total carvings they get all the attention.... More

Lovely surprise. We did have an excellent guide who provided excellent clear history and architectural descriptions. This is where the Kama sutra was discovered after being hidden by jungle for centuries thanks to the mongol invaders. Two hours is ample. Lovely place and worth a visit if in the area.

The Western group of temples are the best and all in one large well maintained park like setting. We did a peaceful half day walk and could easily have spend some more time there. We rented an audio guide but found it not very helpful, so toured on our own as we don't like pushy guides, but prefer to read... More

The sculptures actually leaves a question in your mind as why were they built. What message did they want to convey to the people then and the world now. A must see to explore our culture more!
