The walls of the Khajuraho temples are richly decorated with intricately carved sculptures. Whereas temples of Khajuraho are illustrious for their sexual sculptures, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples art. Furthermore, most "porno" scene themes are in proportional balance with the non- sexual arts. The topics of wall arts cover numerous features of human life and values considered major in Hindu pantheon.

Khajuraho sculpture

The Khajuraho temples are famous for the Nagara style architecture and for their erotic sculptures. Scholars have suggested that the erotic carvings of temples are tantric sexual practices.
But while "Temples of Love" are famous for their erotic sculpture,  over 90% of the art works at the temple are about daily life and symbolic values in ancient Indian culture.
