Khajuraho is a place where you can witness a blend of Architecture & History. It is a place where you can just sit and enjoy the marvelous beauty of the grandeur. You don't need to understand architectural details to appreciate the beauty of the temples. The temple complexes are spread across multiple areas. Best option to explore Khajuraho is to... More

I have visited Khajuraho in July'15. I would say its really a very nice place to visit. The location is still not commercialized fully so its the right time to visit to know the real beauty of the place. I feel it I have visited the place during the perfect timing, neither the climate was too hot nor the place... More

One gets amazed by the sheer vastness of complex. Magnificent architecture during Chandela dynasty period. Do hire a guide for the complete history, and various angles ;-)

Mesmerizing experience! Tomes of eulogy could be written in praise of this awesome destination. Visitors are recommended to use the air services, though we were on a long road-trip covering the summer vacation during June. The peak heat is definitely a deterrent for tourists. We made the best of the off-season as we had lots of offers/discounted packages available. The... More

Must visit place for every Indian. Really beautifully built and nicely carved figures. Explicit, but not vulgar

Indeed the architecture is stunning, the collection of the temples does show how a system and culture existed long ago. The engraving needs a lot of interpretations and dates back to certain meanings in those times. Interpretation of the guides and those in the literature might open up some answers to the portrayal of erotic sculpturing.The temples are the main... More

Learn about the art & culture of a bygone era 1,000 years ago which can be seen through the intricate stone carvings on the temple walls.. You can see the fashion (dress, hair style & jewellery) visible on the statues plus a glimpse at the open & equal culture of that time since both male & female are depicted to... More

Khajuraho Temples are very unique and must visit. Of course, the architecture and the history is well known. I really liked spending time in the evening on the sides of the Temples. It is very clean and well maintained. It is spread over a huge area - so one doesn't feel crowded with people.
