Khajuraho "the Temples of Love"

The Khajuraho Group of Monuments are a group of Hindu and Jain temples in Madhya Pradesh, India. About 620 kilometres (385 mi) southeast of New Delhi, they are one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. The temples are famous for their Nagara-style architectural symbolism and their erotic sculptures, so they were named "the Temples of Love".

Most Khajuraho temples were built between 950 and 1050 AD, during the Chandela dynasty. Historical records note that Khajuraho temple site had 85 temples by 12th century, spread over 20 square kilometers. Of these, only about 20 temples have survived, spread over 6 square kilometers. Of the various surviving temples, the Kandariya temple is decorated with a profusion of sculptures with intricate details, symbolism and expressiveness of ancient Indian art.

The Khajuraho group of temples were built together but were dedicated to two schools of Hinduism and to Jainism - suggesting a tradition of acceptance and respect for diverse religious views among Hindus and Jains.

The temples of Khajuraho are luxuriantly decorated with artfully carved sculptures. Whereas temples of Khajuraho are illustrious for their erotic art, sexual themes occupy less than 10% of the temples walls art. Moreover, most "Kamasutra" images are in balance with the non- sexual images. The images are covering numerous aspects of human life and values considered important in Hindu pantheon.
