Khajuraho

A sleepy little town in Madhya Pradesh, Khajuraho is a treasure trove of some of the finest temple art in the world. These Nagara-styled temples, built by the Chandela dynasty rulers mainly during 950 Ad to 1050 AD, were lost to the world for centuries till they were rediscovered by a British officer in 1838. Out of around 85 temples, only 25 have survived the plunder of time and invaders and have now been categorized into three different groups based on their locations. Though the temple sculptures and carvings are based on a range of themes from spiritual teachings to royalty & kinship, they are most famed for their erotic symbolism.

Alluring Attractions of Khajuraho

Western Group of Temples

Western Group of Temples

The largest and most spectacular of all, the Western Group of Temples is rightfully preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This landscaped complex of temples, built as far as the 11th century, is quite well preserved and is accessible only after paying a small fee. Though there are many temples in the complex, it is Kendriya Mahadev Temple and Lakshamana Temple that steal the limelight for their grand structure & detailed carvings.

Eastern Group of Temples

Eastern Group of Temples

The eastern group consists of a mix of Hindu & Jain temples where four are scattered in the village and three Jain temples housed in a complex. The spectacularly carved Parasavnath Temple, the beautiful Brahma temple, & ornately carved walls of Ghantai temple are the highlights of the Eastern Group of Temples.

Southern Group of Temples

Southern Group of Temples

Much smaller than the other two complexes, this complex is home to the beautiful Chaturbhuj temple, the only temple in Khajuraho facing west. Another beautiful temple here is the Dulhadev Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva as a bridegroom. Excavations are still on in the area, and we are hoping for more architectural gems to appear.

- Memorable Experience !

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
