Description
The temples of Khajuraho are renown for their architectural and sculptural beauty. It is not known why the erotic decorative sculptures although likely based on tantric beliefs held by the Chandela Dynasty who were responsible for building the temples. The temples are unique in that they survived from 1050 despite the desecration usually associated with subsequent invaders and rulers of India as the site was largely overlooked.
