Khajuraho Temples are the gift of love, India has bestowed on the world. Intricately carved with detailed sculptures, the Temples of Khajuraho displays some very unique form of art and architecture, very rare in others parts of the world. The speechless sculptures of Khajuraho speak volumes of the ancient India civilisation.

Khajuraho showcases the art of conjugation, which has been long understood in India. The sculptures represent the different positions of creation and are splendid way to let you learn some basics of human evolution.

The temples are unusual in the sense that the subject matter here is sex, rather than just idol worship, thus it reflects that the necessity and importance of this basic instinct has been well-paid in the Indian context.

Architecture :

But the architectural value is never compromising, it's one of the best in terms of expression of theme and structural competencies. There are 20 temples remaining, and they are divided into three major groups of mainly two sects, Hinduism and Buddhism. The Kendriya Mahadeva temple represents the best sculptures and is the leader among the gamut.
