Khajuraho

Khajuraho SculptureKhajuraho village comes under chatarpur district of madhya pradesh which is famous for khajuraho temples, tourist from far places come for a tour of khajuraho. After Agra, you can certainly head for Khajuraho- a World Heritage site famous for its erotic sculptures. Amidst verdant lawns and pink flowers is the complex of temples, blazoned with the sinuous curves of sculpture unrivalled in their beauty. Out of the 85 temples built by the Chandela rulers in a style which epitomises the Indo-Aryan style of art, only 22 survive today. The site was almost lost in the hallowed portals of time until it was rediscovered by the British in 1838.

Eroticism Sanctified
The famous sculptures, which include statues of gods and goddesses, warriors, celestial dancers and animals, besides those of couples in erotic postures, celebrates the Hindu philosophy of Yoga and Bhoga (physical pleasure)- the two paths leading to final liberation. It is beyond any doubt that these sculptures are the paradigm of the erotic motif of Hindu art. The conjugation of man and woman was viewed as the consummation of devotion, symbolic of the union of the devotee with god and divinity. Besides, there are many sculptures which reflect the prosaic lives of the contemporary people.

Temple Talk
Of the many temples in Khajuraho, the Lakshmana Temple and the Kandariya Mahadeva temple remain unparalled in their grandeur. The latter, dedicated to Lord Shiva, has a 38 metres high spire. The attempt to reconstruct the image of Shiva's home in Mount Kailasha is quite conspicuous here. The statue of an ascetic performing the shirshasan (a yogic posture where the yogi balances himself on his head) is a major attraction of this temple.
