Khajuraho "the Temples of Love"

Khajuraho temples were in active use through the end of 12th century. This changed in the 13th century, after the army of Delhi Sultanate, under the command of the Muslim Sultan Qutb-ud-din Aibak, attacked and seized the Chandela kingdom.

The remoteness and isolation of Khajuraho protected the Hindu and Jain temples from continued destruction by Muslims. Over the centuries, vegetation and forests overgrew, took over the temples. They say the temples were secretly in use by yogis. In the 1830s the temples were thus rediscovered by the global audience.

The Khajuraho temples are richly decorated with intricately carved sculptures. Although temples of Khajuraho are famed for their sexual sculptures, sexual themes occupy less than 10% of the Khajuraho temples sculpture. In addition, most sex scene panels are balanced with the non- sexual scene panels. The wall arts cover numerous features of human life and values considered major in Hindu pantheon.
