One Day Khajuraho Sightseeing Trip by Cab

One Day Khajuraho Sightseeing Trip by Cab

Khajuraho is known around the world for its stunning temples and the depiction of eroticism through sculptures on the temple walls. It is a small town located in the Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh. The temples celebrate marvelous architecture along with intimate forms of love and lust in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, making it a unique place for the one day Khajuraho local tour.

The sculptures of erotic love have been inspired by Vatsyayana’s epic, Kamasutra. All the temples were constructed between 950 to 1050 AD. These ancient temples have defeated the otherwise contemporary and orthodox views of sexual love in Indian culture. Khajuraho is a cultural hotspot that houses remnants of the glorious rule of the Chandela dynasty.

Apart from religious significance, the temples are a testament to religious tolerance, free will, and liberal thinking. For this very reason, the entire town of Khajuraho has also been rewarded with the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally, there were eighty-five temples but centuries of invasions and plundering have reduced the number to a mere twenty-five. Khajuraho is a great place to visit for history, architecture and art lovers.
