Khajuraho Temple Tour
 
Introduction
 
Khajuraho is well known all over the world for its temple architecture and exquisite sculptures. Situated in the heart of India in the state of Madhya Pradesh, it lies in the forested plains of the region of Bundelkhand. The Khajuraho temples were built between the 9th and 11th centuries by the warrior kings of the Chandela dynasty.
According to local legend, temples were built by the first Chandela raja to atone his mother sin, whose consummation with the Moon god hearalded the start of the Chandela dynasty.
These exquisitely carved temples are also the site for an annual mela on the occasion of Shivaratri which is celebrated here as the wedding of Shiva. This living tradition fits in with the new theory about Khajuraho that the temples were built as wedding chariots for the gods who came to attend the wedding. Khajuraho combines history, architecture, culture and environment with delectable charm.
