The craftsmanship of the period is amazing to say the least. It is a temple of Lord Vishnu and named as Laksmana temple after the Chandela ruler who got it constructed. The services of guide are exorbitantly priced and need to be drastically cut down.

It smells like pee inside and maybe bats poo together. For me nothing specific inside, except of the smell. From outside... More

Its the major and one of the popular temple not only in Western Group of temples but also in Khajuraho. Having maximum numbers of erotic models engraved on the temple wall. If one really be aloofed in it, I am sure he/she will feel some reaction or sex starveness. Best time to visit is at sunrise or afternoon.

This is the first one you witness as soon as you enter the complex and the guide takes lots of time to explain the concept of the same The explanation actually sets the tone of tour and then one you go around the temple and see the life cycle going like a biopic the whole experience becomes GREAT
