Khajuraho "the Temples of Love": The erotic sculptures

Khajuraho temples are famous for their erotic arts. These constitute about 10% of total art displayed at the monuments. The Khajuraho temples feature a variety of art work, some of which is sexual or erotic art outside and inside the temples. Some of the temples that have two layers of walls have small erotic carvings on the outside of the inner wall. Some scholars suggest these to be tantric sexual practices.
Other scholars state that the erotic arts are part of Hindu tradition of treating kama as an essential and proper part of human life, and its symbolic or explicit display is common in Hindu temples. James McConnachie, in his history of the Kamasutra, describes the sexual-themed Khajuraho sculptures as "the apogee of erotic art".

The walls of the Khajuraho temples have a rich display of artfully carved sculptures. Although temples of Khajuraho are renowned for their sex art, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples walls art. Furthermore, most sexual images are balanced with the non- sexual themes. The art themes cover numerous details of human life and values considered major in Hindu pantheon.
