Why should you visit Khajuraho?

Exploring Khajuraho is an amazing experience perhaps the best in the school of ancient Indian temple art and architecture that can leave a visitor dazed. The entire region in the vicinity of the temples is extremely tidy and well preserved. The temples are richly decorated though almost a thousand years have elapsed since their creation. The tourist gets an impression as if these amazing monuments have sprung up right from the centre of the earth just the other day.

The structures and monuments have a well designed layout founded on laws of engineering. If the structure of the temple suggests sound engineering principles, the carvings and ornamentation would certainly be the last word in the field of contemporary art.

The images sculpted reverberate with boundless energy radiating outward. The figures of men and female sculpted out of sandstone speak for themselves. The word erotic art won’t do justice to the brilliant pieces frozen in stone that awaits the visitor.

The sculptures are extremely graceful, and while chipping the artist have poured in all his brilliant imagination and passion into stonework and created immortal artwork throbbing with life! The figures are not just expressionless inanimate rock art. On minute observation love, passion, humor, hate and ecstasy could be spotted in the otherwise silent statues. They are surprisingly expressive and seem to establish communion with the spectators engrossed in their magnificence. The eroticism does not suggest profanity. It has a divine connection and this sexual unification is considered sacred. The figures are sculpted and engraved on temples as a show of reverence to the deities.
