Khajuraho is well known all over the world for its temple Temples In Khajurahoarchitecture and exquisite sculptures. Situated in the heart of India in the state of Madhya Pradesh, it lies in the forested plains of the region of Bundelkhand. The Khajuraho temples were built between the 9th and 11th centuries by the warrior kings of the Chandela dynasty. However, the definite reason behind such mass scale temple construction that is now over a thousand years old remains unknown. According to local legend, these temples were built by the first Chandela raja to atone his mother’s sin, whose consummation with the Moon god heralded the start of the Chandela dynasty.

Khajuraho Temples
Khajuraho combines history, architecture, culture and environment with delectable charm. It takes one away from the noise and pollution of the city, with its fresh air and scenic countryside. Its quaint charm and marvelous beauty of the temples attracts people to it and makes it Madhya Pradesh’s most famous tourist town.

The Kahjuraho Temples magnetizes tourists from all the corners of the world. The temples are grouped into three geographical divisions : western, eastern and southern. The ceilings are particularly noteworthy and the pillars supporting them have intricately carved capitals. The sanctum features a lingam, while the main shrine is ornately carved and depicts various gods, goddesses, apsaras in elaborate ornaments. The temple also projects royal processions, group dances and other scenes of sheer luxury, typical of the Chandela period.

Western Group
The Western group is certainly the best known, because it is to this group that the largest and most typical Khajuraho temple belongs : the Kandariya Mahadev. Perfectly symmetrical, it soars 31 km high.

Kandariya Mahadeo: This is the largest, and most typical Khajuraho temple. There are about 900 statues in this temple. Kandariya Mahadeo is dedicated to Lord Shiva, and it soars 31 m upward. Every inch of the temples - the entrance arch, the huge pillars and ceilings are noteworthy with exquisite carvings, leaving the tourists spellbound.

Chaunsat Yogini: Dedicated to Goddesses Kali, Chaunsat Yogini is the oldest surviving temple in the group. This is the sole granite temple of 900 A.D. Only 35 of the original 65 cells remain and no image of Kali has survived.

Chitragupta Temple: Facing the rising sun, Chitragupta Temple is dedicated to the Sun-God, Surya. The inner sanctum projects of an impressive image of the presiding deity - the Sun-God looming 5 feet high, and driving a chariot.

Vishwanath Temple: The temple enshrines a three-headed image of Lord Brahma. The temple of Vishvanath and Nandi celebrates the marriage of Lord Shiva with Parvati. The sculptures are dominated by women in various moods.

Lakshamana Temple: The sanctum is adorned with a three-headed idol of Vishnu's incarnations, Narasimha and Varaha. The sculptures feature - battle, hunting and women.

Matangeshwara Temple: This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It boasts of an eight feet high lingam. It is still a place of worship.

Devi Jagdamba Temple : The temple of Devi Jagdamba is dedicated to Goddeses Kali.

Other important temples in the western group are the temples of Lakshmi and Varaha, Mahadev, Chitragupta, Parvati, and Matangesvara.

Eastern Group
Parsavanatha Temple: The temple of Parsvanath is the largest of the Jain temples in Khajuraho. It was originally dedicated to Adinath and later to Parsvanath.

Ghantai Temple: This Jain temple has a frieze depicting the 16 dreams of Mahavira's mother, and a multi-armed Jain goddess sitting on a winged Garuda.

Shantinath Temple : This is the newest of all the temples in Khajuraho. It is just a century old and has a big statue of Adinath.

The three Hindu temples in this group are the Brahma temple, which has a four-faced lingam, The Vamana temple which is embellished with images of ravishing apsaras at their alluring best; and finally the Javari temple, with its ornate gateway and lavish carvings. A variety of sensuous attitudes : languid, provocative, mischievously inviting, give credibility to the theory that Khajuraho's erotica were meant to test the devotees who came to worship their gods at the temples.

Southern Group of Temples
5 km from the Khajuraho village, lies the Southern Group of temples.

Duladeo Temple: This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple boasts of some of the exquisite images of the apsaras.
