The temples are clustered in different locations and among the lot, the western group of temples are stunning. It is highly recommended that you pick the audio guide at the entrance gate. This audio guide is fantastic to know more about the history and significance of each sculpture and each temple.

Seeing is believing. No photo or video can ever do justice to what has been built hundreds of years ago. Must visit to understand creativity, effort, scale, etc Western Group Temple complex is very well maintained. Well manicured, green lawns, flowers, etc. Others have not received the same attention. Unfortunately some of the temple structures have been EXTREMELY POORLY renovated.

We enjoyed the temples immensely, even with the overbearing heat. We just took our time, it was worth it. Mind you, we're not giving it 5-stars because right at the entrance/exit there are loads of rickshaw drivers waiting to harass you. Seriously some of the worst I've ever experienced, though we were there in the offseason.

The Western temples of Khajuraho are magnificient example of unbelievable artwork of 1000 years old. The intricate stone works are quite fascinating and the artists of those age had achieved sheer excellence. The facial expressions of pleasure, excitement were engraved in the stone carvings and they are still standing strong even after 100 years. A must see for all.

Spellbinding experience of the sculpture made by the unknown artist where each stone has a story to tell

A monument more 1000 years old , with magnificent sculptures & craftsmanship. Do take a guide. Don't miss the light & sound show in the evening. It starts around 7 pm in the evening (get it confirmed in the ticket counter)

It was a wow experience. To enjoy the temples thoroughly, dedicate an entire day to them. They are basically a group of monuments each completed in different period of time and each dedicated to a different god and has a different story related to its construction. The temple complex hosts a light and sound show in the evening. We planned... More

Our tour company may take this stop off the tour because it's hard to get here but it would be a shame because there's nothing like it. Hidden by the jungle for centuries its one of the only sites we saw that weren't defaced. Intricate sexy carvings that are so fun to explore. Plus it's one of the only smaller... More
