Day 2 Khajuraho
A stupendous town with a history dating back to the 10th and 11th centuries Christian era, Khajuraho is renowned across the world for its awe-inspiring Hindu and Jain temples. Khajuraho is known for the Khajuraho group of monuments constructed by the Chandela Dynasty rulers who built several temples, each depicting man’s different activities in life; from meditation to kinship and wrestling to cooking. Despite the fact that erotic art is most associated with the Khajuraho group of temples, the fact remains that only fracture of the structures depict eroticism. Out of the over 15 majestic temples here, some of the most famous ones on the western, eastern and southern groups include the Lakshama Temple, the Parsvanath temple, and the Chattarbhuj temple. Most of the temples here are built in sandstone in various shades of pink and yellow. Khajuraho monuments have been ranked as the best preserved monuments of antiquity by the Archaeological Survey of India.
