Khajuraho Tour Packages
Once the capital city of the great Chandela dynasty, today Khajuraho is probably the most known tourist destination in India, after the Taj Mahal. Visitors from all over the world visit it to see the exquisite erotic temples, which are now also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The temples and sculptures of Khajuraho are a tribute and reminder of our rich and ancient past and were built in a truly inspired burst of creativity, in the short span of a hundred years, from 950-1050 AD. The Chandelas, were great builders and connoisseurs of art and recruited labour from Malwa and Rajasthan to build these monumental temples of such awesome proportions. They ruled for five centuries before slowly succumbing to the Mughals. It remains a mystery as to how and when the temples of Khajuraho were abandoned to the jungles. Lost to the world until 1838, when a young British officer stumbled upon the site, these works of art were saved from the Muslim invaders who desecrated all idolatrous temples and Khajuraho, with its profusion of erotica would have certainly suffered a similar fate.
Of the 85 original temples, 22 survive today and constitute one of the world's great artistic wonders. The temples of Khajuraho are India's unique gift to the world. They are perfect in execution and sublime in expression and represent love, joy and life itself. Yes, life in every form and mood has been captured in stone.

Nowhere else you find such a display of erotic passions frozen in stone. Some call it the Kamasutra in three dimensions. Interestingly, the Kamasutra was written after the temples of Khajuraho were built.
