Find a local guide to help you understand the architecture and all the sculptures. There is more to this complex of temples than those famous Kama Sutra depictions and is a nice surprise to discover all the hidden meanings. We only stayed for 3 hours because of the heat (it was a really hot day), but our guide offered a... More

The Temple is amazing though renovation work done by ASI is pathetic and careless. The temples are known as Erotic temples but it is nothing of that sort hardly 10%. The sculpture is worth seeing , even the cloth , and body twists and turns depicted that their is no way you will not be awed. Must visit place for... More

Khajuraho is a must for anyone interested in building design and carvings. The temples are absolutely amazing. 3D artistry at its very best. The scale and quantity of carving on each site is difficult to comprehend without visiting. Don't try to do it in a day there is just too much to see!

Khajuraho temples are a must see in life for those who have positive attitude, passion for male-female relations and physical beauty, adore art and nudity is not a sin. Those who can relate sex with spirit and art will have a new window here. It is also an eye opener for those who have narrow mentality about natural relations and... More

The Temples are worth visiting and the sound-and-light show in the evening gives a fair history.Please see all of them. They are not all full of sex related frescoes as is the common belief.A different architectural wonder and well maintained by World Heritage.

Stunning sculptures and temples. Take an audio guide so you don't have to deal with the guides who love to describe the x-rated statues. Go early in the morning where there are no crowds and you will have a great time.
