The Khajuraho temple complex of Bundelkhand region (Chhatarpur District) of Madhya Pradesh remains unique In the temple architecture of India. The temples of Khajuraho were built between 950 to 1050 A.D, under the patronage of the Chandela Rajput kings. 85 magnificent temples were constructed on one site. After the decline of the Chandela dynasty in 13th century, the temples were left under the cover of dense date palm trees for many years, which gave the city of Khajuraho its name. In 1838, a British army engineer, Captain T.S. Burt rediscovered them. By that time only 22 of the original 85 temples had survived.. These famous groups of Hindu and Jain temples are a UNESCO World Heritage Site for their beautiful and erotic rock carvings.


The Temples : Khajuraho's art is a manifestation of the essence of the philosophy of Indian aesthetics. The architectural style of the Khajuraho temples is very different from the other temples of contemporary period. Each stands on a high masonry platform. Combined with the upward direction of the structure, which is further accentuated by vertical projections, the total effect is one of grace and lightness, reminiscent of the Himalayan peaks. The temples of Khajuraho are divided into three geographical groups: Western, Eastern and Southern.

Lakhmana Temple : The oldest and finest of the western group of temples.
