Description: The temples at Khajuraho were constructed during the Chandella dynasty (reaching its zenith in 950-1050). Currently only about 20 temples remain; they belong to two different religions (Hinduism and Jainism) and fall into three distinct groups. They achieve an ideal balance between architecture and sculpture. Among the greatest masterpieces of Indian art are seen on the temple of Kandariya, within its decorative sculptural profusions. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.

  Khajuraho (Hindi खजुराहो) is a village in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, located in Chhatarpur District, about 385 miles (620 kilometres) southeast of Delhi, the capital city of India. The Khajuraho group of monuments has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the most popular tourist destinations in India, Khajuraho has the largest group of medieval Hindu and Jain temples, famous for their erotic sculpture. The name Khajuraho is derived from the Hindi word khajur meaning date palm. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
