The erotic carvings that swathe Khajuraho’s three groups of World Heritage–listed temples are among the finest temple art in the world. The Western Group of temples, in particular, contains some stunning sculptures. See our special colour illustration for details.
Many travellers complain about the tiring persistence of touts here. Their complaints are well founded, but its not so bad that you should contemplate missing out on these beautiful temples.
Come February/March, the Western Group of temples becomes the stage for the weeklong Festival of Dance.
