The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Located 620 KMs south east Delhi and accessible via train and Bus. This temple complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Khajuraho has the largest group of temples, famous for their erotic sculpture depicting The Kama Sutra; the ancient 'art of love making'. The society of ancient Vedic times believed in embracing sex and accepting it as the ultimate and inevitable reality of life.
The Khajuraho temples do not contain sexual or erotic art inside the temple or near the deities; however, some external carvings bear erotic art. There is another interpretation of the erotic carvings. Some believe that they depict that to seek the deity inside the temple, one must leave his sexual desires out of the temple.
Light and sound show every evening is worth a watch. An hour long show covers the history, philosophy and the art of sculpting of these temples. The Khajuraho Dance Festival, held every year in February/March, is an opportunity for visitors to experience various classical Indian dances.
