Interesting temple complex, the grounds are well maintained and restoration work on the temples is quite good although the new vs old distinction is obvious. Relatively small site but pleasant and interesting to visit.

The Khajuraho Temples are quite different to most temples you will see in India... Everyone comes here to find the famous erotica engraved on the temple walls and see the famous handstand position! It's a great group of temples to see, regardless of the engravings they are beautiful. The grounds are also kept very well and it is a pleasant... More

The temples in Khajuraho are truly impressive and I was also very impressed with how they have maintained and managed the temple complex. One can spend hours looking at each temple and it is so beautiful and grand that it's worth visiting again.

We were well and truly templed-out when we got here. No matter, this was impressive. If you only choose one temple to visit in India, make it this one.

Temples in Khajuraho are divided into 3 categories depending upon their geographic locations, western temple, eastern temple and southern temple. Road conditions for eastern and southern temple are not good. Light and sound program at western temple is good.

The intricate designs and history of just one of these temples would be a delightful eye-opener. The fact that they are dotted all round Khajuraho (the mot famous group being the Western Temples) each with different foundation stories, spiritual meaning and stunning carvings mean that it is a wonderful place to wander or cycle. The most popular Western group were... More
