I visited this temple 50 years back when I was working at satna. m. p. Kajroho is very near to panna. I made a visit thinking I can see gods. But it was diffrent. At that time the temple is not known to many and there was no facilities. Now lot of improvement had been done and hotels are avoilable.... More

Warning - do not take children with you, if you don't want them to learn a thing or two about sexual positions! These temples are unique with the architecture and it's fascinating to see all the different statues carved into them. I believe you need a guide, and that guide will point out a lot of the different statues and... More

Even though this is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it might be a bit off the beaten track for some tours. If you have any choice, this is well worth a visit, even if you need to make it a side tour, perhaps requiring a short plane trip from places like Varanasi Agra, or Delhi. Really, this is... More

The temples are incredible in their detail and ornateness. They are famous because of their link with erotic scenes from the Kama Sutra, but they are much more than this - they exemplify an amazing set of architectural and artistic skills that need to be seen to be believed. I would rate them a much more important place to visit... More

Firstly, the cleanliness in the area is unmatched anywhere in India. The landscape is stunning. and the temples are uniquely beautiful. The erotic sculptures, the architecture, design and landscaping is absolutely breathtaking.

Fascinating and very different! Use a guide if you want more in-depth knowledge. 3-4 hours for both sites is enough time if you are in a rush

We visited the temples at dawn and it was great .. with the monkeys that made us the company we enjoyed a visit to the sublime. it seems that the city of Khajuraho is not part of the chaotic India, these temples are a continuous discovery, have a charm of its own

Firstly - get the audio guide - it has so much information about the temples and the history and points out sculptures you wouldn't normally see. These temples are beautiful, the sculptures are magnificent with so much fine detail to them; yes, there are erotic sculptures with a fascinating story behind them, but these are less than 10% of the...
