A temples complex

Khajuraho situated in the heart of the most northern part of the state Madhya Pradesh is famous for its splendid temples. These temples with outstanding sculptures embellished in stone were built during the reign of the Chandela dynasty. This small town in the heart of Madhya Pradesh is also famous for its legendary Khajuraho dance festival.

The temples of Khajuraho are dedicated to Gods and goddesses like Shiva, Jagadamba and Vishnu . These temples from the 10th century form a closed architectural unit with outstanding sculptural art and architecture. These temples are known to the outside world only for their erotic sculptures. On the contrary these sculptures reflect mainly the life of that time in all its moods, and the deep religious faith of these people. Some of these temples are already thousand years old, while some will celebrate this birthday next year.
