Khajuraho

Experience Khajuraho
Khajuraho is only a small village today though there was a time when it used to be a central hub of creative activity during the reign of Chandelas. The temples of Khajuraho, however, have stood their ground in the time span of about 1000 years. The unique architecture of Khajuraho temples attracts attention for its rare expression of the raw human emotions that were difficult to find elsewhere. Every element of these temples has been richly carved with the mythical and historical figures. The place was forgotten for quite some time, it started becoming popular in the mid 60's and now it enjoys a special place in the tourist itineraries. In terms of popularity, the place has come pretty close to the Taj Mahal of Agra.

Visiting Khajuraho
The Khajuraho temples are categorized into three broad groups. These are:
Khajuraho Temple» The Western Group : The most noticed temple of this group is the Kandariya Mahadev which is built in the typical Central Indian style of architecture. It is the largest among all the temples at Khajuraho and as the name suggests, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The other important temples of the group are Matangeshwara temple, Lakshman temple and Devi Jagdamba temple.

» The Eastern Group : Also known as the Jain group of temples, here you come across the Jain temples such as Parasnath, Adinath and Ghantai all of which are replete with intricate carvings though the erotic sculptures seen in the Hindu temples are absent here. There are three Hindu temples here which are dedicated to Vamana, Javari and Brahma.

» The Southern Group : There are only two temples here – Duladeo and Chaturbhuja. It appears that Duladeo was built when the majority of the Khajuraho temples were already built. The other temple, Chaturbhuja, is situated somewhat far from the village and is known for its three meter high statue of Lord Vishnu.


Staying in Khajuraho
Since Khajuraho is the most popular tourist attraction after the Taj Mahal, it is but natural that the place sees heavy tourist traffic throughout the year. Khajuraho is home to the largest group of medieval temples which are very distinct from the other temples built elsewhere in India. Hotels across various categories have come up in Khajuraho to cater to the ever growing tourist traffic in Khajuraho. Some of the important hotels in Khajuraho include Hotel Clarks, Usha Bundela, Chandela, The Jass Trident and Khajuraho Ashok.


Shopping in Khajuraho
Khajuraho TemplesShopping in Khajuraho is a lot easier if you know in advance what to buy and where. Khajuraho has a rich tradition of handicrafts and handlooms and it'll be no wonder if you end up buying more than your fair share of saris and other ethnic Indian wear. The miniature stone replicas of the erotic sculptures here are a favourite with the tourists visiting Khajuraho.


Reaching Khajuraho
There is a domestic airport in Khajuraho which is connected with the major cities like Delhi, Agra and Varanasi by regular flights operated by several airline companies. There is no railway station at Khajuraho therefore those who prefer travelling by train will have to go to Jhansi or Satna. Khajuraho is 175 km away from Jhansi whereas Satna is 120 km away from here. The road network that connects Khajuraho with the major cities such as Agra (395 km away), Jhansi and Orchha is also very good.
