Longing for making inquiry into creative depiction of India’s past! Embark on Incredible India Tour that shows you one of the creative geniuses of India’s medieval civilization – Khajuraho Temple.
One of the most popular destinations in India, Khajuraho is home to India’s largest group of medieval Hindu temples. These temples are famous for their erotic sculptures depicting scenes from the Kama Sutra. Only discovered in the 20th century after being reclaimed by jungle, the Khajuraho group of monuments is today protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Khajuraho was once the religious capital of the Chandela Rajputs, a Hindu dynasty that ruled this part of India from the 10th to the 12th centuries. These temples were built over a span of a hundred years, from 950 to 1050, with the whole area enclosed by a wall with eight gates, each flanked by two golden palm trees. There were originally over 80 Hindu temples, of which only 22 now stand in a reasonable state of preservation, scattered over an area of about 8 sq miles.
Discover the history of these world-famous temples in Khajuraho while making Incredible India Tour and enjoy a taste of a little erotica from the Middle Age of India.
I traveled with a luxury train to Madhya Pradesh around two years ago and visited Khajuraho temples. I think those sculptures are truly amazing and the aesthetics must be appreciated…
