The Temples are an excellent example of rich Indian culture, and the broad mindedness of the community.
They are an excellent piece of sculpture, art and imagination.

OK, First things First. These temples are not EROTIC. Surprised!, so was I. The image of Khajuraho Temples has a notorious image because of Kamasutra Sculptures, mind you, personally I beg to differ. Yes, these temples were made with yogsutra(Yoga) and tantra (Knowledge and power of Mantras) in mind.

The temples have the most spectacular piece of art and architecture India has to offer. The dexterity of artisans of Chandela Dynasty are beautifully preserved in their original state. Visit these temples with a open mind set and art in your mind. You will enjoy.

Khajuraho is a remarkabe temple site. The western temples have high towers and are covered with carvings that depict Gods, animals, battles, sex and daily life in ancient times. In addition to temple viewing, make sure to visit the old village wnere you can stroll the quaint streets and observe and meet the locals. It is also interesting to walk through the rural countryside.

The city which had golden dates tree on its gates in ancient times is even by no standards an ordinary city today either. The only thing I can say is divinity with mundane.
In 2009 when for first time I visited the temple of belur in hasan district of Karnataka I had made a notion that it was the second best structure in the country after the Taj Mahal but I have been made to rethink today. It is shear art to its extreme. Khajuraho has an un parallel charm and charisma. The structure makes one to think one step ahead of our fascination to arches and domes which Turkish and moguls have introduced. Every carving, each sculptor has a story to tell and for not so great readers like me but who have interest in listening to stories what better way. Seeing it today I ll go to the extend that may be I have been bit partial toward the taj considering the euphoria of the western world. The lakshman temple may not be able to match the grandeur of the temple of kandariya mahadev but it has a more vocal stories to tell. It has the divinity unmatched. The fables and the day to day account of the medieval India.
The all talked about magnificent structures cholas made( brideshwar temple at thanjavur), or the unmatched style or precision of hoysalas ( somnathpuram, melekote, belur, halebedu or shravanbelgola ) I am just falling short of words.
It may sound quite banal but had I been a poet I would have written a ode
