Travel Diary: Erotic Sculptures of Khajuraho

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on August 12, 2012

Deep in the heart of India lie the beautiful temples of Khajuraho, known around the world for their depiction of erotic art in the form of sculptures. The temples were built over a period of 300 years circa 950 AD and fortunately faded into obscurity that saved them from the wrath of the Muslim conquerors of India. Several interpretations exist of their essence but the one I like to believe in is the call to shed all sensual desires before entering the temple to be one with the deity.

The small town of Khajuraho is very tourist friendly, with local guides speaking fluent English, Spanish and French. Its a great place to explore using a bicycle. Enjoy the images 🙂
