Khajuraho "the Temples of Love" have a rich display of intricately carved statues

The vast majority of arts depict various aspects the everyday life, mythical stories as well as symbolic display of various secular and spiritual values important in Hindu tradition. For example, depictions show women putting on makeup, musicians making music, potters, farmers, and other folks in their daily life during the medieval era. These scenes are in the outer padas as is typical in Hindu temples.
The walls of the Khajuraho temples are richly decorated with intricately carved sculptures. Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for their "porno" art, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples sculpture. Moreover, most sexual images are in balance with the non- sexual themes. The images are covering numerous aspects of human life and values are major in Hindu pantheon.
