The temples at Khajuraho are divided into three campuses, the Wester, Eastern and Southern. The Western Campus is by far the larget group and contains some of the best temples, especially Pasupatinath temple, which is perhaps the best of the lot. The site is a UNESCO heritage area and nicely maintained. Do try to take a guide (audio guides are... More

This is a collection of temples and a lot of them show erotic statues in poses that are also common in the Kama Sutra books. The art is very well made, each temple took about 20 years to make. The details are amazing and it's all childproof ;-) There is a place where you can get some food,snacks and drinks.... More

The sculptures on the Khajuraho Temples are unique. One needs to spend adequate time to look, understand and absorb the theme and essence of the Sculptures. Do not miss the sound & light show.

Let's be honest: The temples at Khajuraho became famous for one reason - the stunningly explicit and often hilarious erotic sculptures carved into the exterior of its impressive temples. Though it's often stated that the erotic only compose 5-10% of the total sculptures at Khajuraho, these are obviously the most memorable and the ones people come to see. However, it's... More

Although the town isnt not very well connected by road(you can fly from delhi though) to delhi/agra but the visit is worth the pain(read long bumpy ride from Agra/jhansi). Its kamasutra sculpted in stone & the beauty of carvings leaves you dumbfounded(considering the fact the temples were built 1000 thousand years back).

The campus of the temples is excellent and the sculpture of temples is beautiful.One gets an impression that it is only erotic sculptures but those are just part of it.It does not look like that these are 1000 years old.
