The most exquisite of the temples in form and detail. You can go around and see sculpture for a whole day. Equally brilliant inside.

This is one of the oldest of all temples in Khajuraho, nearly 1000 years old. A example of magnificent craftsmanship and precision. It true justifies it's place on the list of world heritage sites by UNESCO. Don't miss the light & sound show in the evening.

Khajuraho, a world of exotic art. Sculpturally and architecturally, the Lakshman temple has some remarkable feature which place it at the beginning of the finer series of sandstone temples of the western group of temples

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.
