There are eleven temples in Western Temples at Khajuraho. This is one of them. They are world famous temples and well maintained by Archaeological Survey of India.

Dated from around AD 930 to 950 it's one of the earliest of the western enclosed temples and also well preserved. A full 5 part floor plan and shrines. Around the temple are 2 bands of art sculpture on the base of the temple is a frieze with battle scenes and hunting all I can say is wow!

There is so much history and very special , monuments full of sex scenes are unique wrapped a bit excessive , as the sex scenes between men and animals , but must be seen in any case there is no such thing.

This temple is more famous for its erotic depictions, but there is a lot more to it that just that. The temple is adorned with celestial beauties of all kinds engaged in activities of daily life. Beautiful panels depict hunting, wedding and army on march scenes.
