about khajuraho


Recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the historical city is a symbol of medieval art. Out of the 85 temples, 22 still exist in all their grandeur. The temples nest artistic sculptures and carvings depicting Kama Sutra. The Kandariya Mahadev Temple, Khajuraho Temples and Lakshmana Temple are a must visit for their archaeological essence.

In the midst of a North Indian rural stretch, where infrastructure and other parameters of progress have never quite found their way, stands an airport. Amid the surrounding forests and the dusty village thrive several expensive hotels, cafés doling out pancakes and many foreign tourists. All for one of the more intriguing mysteries of Indian history — what are some of the most acrobatic orgiastic scenes anyone has ever seen doing on ancient Indian temple walls? Khajuraho village hosts a magnificent complex of 25 8th-9th century CE temples built by the Chandela dynasty of king

Khajuraho was the first capital of the Chandelas, who rose to rule the region in the 9th century CE and in the 10-14th centuries were the most powerful rulers of this region. From the onset, Khajuraho was envisaged as a temple town, which accounts for the absence of any non-religious structures other than tanks and lakes. Interestingly, by the 16th century, Khajuraho vanished into forested oblivion and is not even mentioned in the Mughal records. Ever since the ‘discovery’ of Khajuraho by the British engineer TS Burt in the 19th century, the largest group of temples — called the Western Group — has been the most impressive site here.

The mystic town of Khajuraho is host to a plethora of interesting and lovely events. Held during the first week of February is the dance festival. Besides the dance festival, there are myriad of dance performances taking place regularly. With such elegant and beautiful dance forms surrounding you, you are bound to be amazed. Enjoy and experience art at its best in this enchanting town. Besides, these special events, the city also celebrates Guru Purnima, Buddha Purnima, Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi with much enthusiasm.
