 The Khajurao temples are famous for their Nagara style of architecture , their erotic sculptures and belong to the traditional religions of Hinduism and Jainism.  They are identified under three groups  - the western group, the eastern group and the southern group. Worth a visit.

A glimpse of Hindu art and culture 1000 years ago. We did not know complete story before visiting. You must hire a guide to learn all details.

I visited the western group temples here. They temples are well kept, clean and well maintained. Entry fees is Rs. 30 for Indian and Rs 500 for foreigners. And this money has been put to good use. I have never seen such well maintained gardens at Archeological sites. The temples are repaired to a great extend and its noticeable. Many... More

First saw pictures of these temple carvings 45 years ago in art history class, but seeing them live and in person is completely different. These ancient temples were meant to instruct the common and unlettered people of the time - about the duties of life, the place of the gods, and sex. Most visitors now focus on the sex -... More

Khajuraho has these impressive temples as their main attraction. They are over 1000 years old and remain in good condition. The carving detail on the temples is impressive as well as "x-rated" in places... The area around the temples is open and very well maintained - probably one of the best/cleanest we saw during our month in India. The town... More

These temples are set in great gardens where you can spend a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the sites. The temples are known for their erotic sculptures although as they are small it is not always obvious as to the content until you look closely! Well worth the visit.

The Khajuraho Temples are off the beaten path and somewhat difficult to get to but are well worth the trip. The town has a beautiful new airport but very few flights and we had to take a long train ride from Agra. The temples are well preserved and in excellent shape. We highly recommend touring with a guide so that... More
