Khajuraho Temples : Jabalpur Directory

 

UNESCO World Heritage Site

Khajuraho Temples

The Khajuraho Temples are one of the most popular tourist destinations in India located some 270km from Jabalpur in the state of Madhya Pradesh. These are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Khajuraho Temples are an excellent example of love to the world. They represent the expression of a highly matured civilization. The exquisite and intricate sculptures of the Khajuraho Temples are a dedication to the womanhood.

History : Khajuraho Temples are believed to have been built by the mighty Chandela rulers in 9th and 10th century AD. The carvings on the outside of these temples are highly sensual and erotic. It has been suggested that these suggest tantric sexual practices. But many believe that they portray that, for seeing the deity, one must leave his or her sexual desires outside the temple. There were earlier some 85 temples out of which only 20 exist today. The Khajuraho Temples are made of sandstone blocks fitted together, the temples are aligned east-west.

The temples at Khajuraho are divided into three broad groups:
