Khajuraho

          The modern village of Khajuraho is a cluster of hotels, restaurants, shops and stalls, near the western group of temples. The government of India tourist office is here. There are also offices at the airport and the bus stand which can be helpful with booking accommodations in the height of the season. The largest and most important temples are in the attractively landscaped western enclosure in this area. A km or so east of the bus stand is the old village of Khajuraho. Around it are the temples of the eastern group and to the south are two further groups of temples. During the tourist season, dance displays are staged at the modern purpose-built Chandella Cultural Center. Foreigners have to pay a rip-off US$ 5 for tickets. The tourist office is said to reviewing its discriminatory pricing policy.

For the purpose of convenience, the village of Khajuraho has been divided into three directional areas in which are located the major groups of temples.

Western Group: These groups of temples are entirely Hindu, and constitute some of the finest examples of Chandela art at its peak. The largest being the Kandhariya Mahadev, followed by a granite temple - Chaunsath Yogini. The Chitragupta Temple is dedicated to the Sun God, while the Vishwanath Temple sports a three-headed image of Brahma - the Creator of the Universe. The Lakshmana Temple is superbly decorated, while the Devi Jagdambi Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kali. Other temples in the Western Group include the Varaha Temple with a nine-feet high boar-incarnation of Lord Vishnu, the Matangeshwara Temple with a eight-feet high lingam, and the Brahma Temple.

Eastern Group: This group comprises of two historic Jain temples - the Adinath Temple lavishly embellished with sculpted figures, and the Parsvanath Temple, the largest Jain temple, sculpted with charming detail. There are other shrines such as the Vamana Temple with apsaras in sensuous poses, and the Javari Temple that has a richly-carved doorway.

Southern Group: This group has two impressive temples, mainly belonging to the 12th century - the Chaturbhuja Temple, with a massive, carved image of Vishnu, and the Duladeo Temple, one of the last temples of the Chandela era, dedicated to Lord Shiva.

Symbolising a medieval legacy, the Khajuraho temples are a perfect fusion of architectural and sculptural excellence, representing one of the finest examples of Indian art.
