the architecture is a marvel. specially the stones quarried from the Panna mines the symmetry the sculptures, the geometry!! all are worth a study. the panels at the eye level are just 10 - 14 " high. but as the eye travels higher, the sculptures went on getting larger in size!!

Unbelievable ! Extra-ordinary ! approx. 1000 year back, Indians were constructed such beautiful architectures ! The Four Goals of Hindu Life: Kama, Artha, Dharma & Moksha is depicted in these marvellous scriptures. Dont miss the light and sound show from our legend Amitabh Bachhan's voice.

This Temple also belongs to the western Group of Temples of Khajuraho. Carved out of Sand Stone, it stands very gracefully.This is very,very intricately carved. This is a Jain Temple.

After entering the western group site this is the first temple.Though this temple is famous for their erotic content, in actuality, such sculptures are quite few and no more than 10 -15% of the total work. Great architecture and magficant examples of sculpture of that Chandela period. Lakshmana Temple is one of the best temple in western group.

Stone Beauties wrapped in mystery unfolded after thousand years. Khajuraho has Western, Eastern and Southern temple clusters. All nearby but west is the major attraction. East has jain temple smaller in no. While south has a excavation temple area. That is also an interesting place to visit in case you are interested in how ASI works and resorts heritage.Overall there... More

This Hindu Temple complex is the jewel in the crown. Go with a good guide or take the audio tour.- it's not about the erotica but more about the entire Hindu philosophy

All of the temples in this area must be visited, if you are anywhere close by. I recommend spending at least one full day here. The shops in town will definitely bargain, and all is within easy walking distance.

Upon entering the western group site the first temple you reach along the path is this one. It is quite large and like the others is intricately carved and includes erotic carvings.

These Khajuraho temples are very interesting and it helps to have someone along to fill in the information about what these are all about. The construction is interesting along with the sculpture.
