Khajuraho

Khajuraho is a place in India that doesn’t need any introductions. People visit this place coming from all four corners of the world, to witness its astoundingly rich heritage and an equally entrancing architecture. Dotted with several temples decked with erotic and beautifully sensuous carvings, these unique temples are veritably a masterpiece of the ancient Indian heritage. Located in the Bundelkhand region of the state, Khajuraho is a small town with big fame that finds its roots in the indigenous culture dating back to the medieval period. 

Built around 950 AD to 1050 AD, these temples portray the sheer paradox of the Indian ideologies regarding eroticism as are known today with those in the period, as is evident from these constructions. This is enough to leave anyone who sees them spellbound and perplexed. 

The bold engravings on the walls of these temples while may seem too insolent for some, but are undoubtedly the purest depiction of innocent passion and love, showcased in the most punctilious and aesthetic manner. One way or the other, the place surely deserves your attention for the finesse of cultural and architectural heritage of India.
