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.
