Khajuraho, a small and relaxed town where one can easily observe village life, is known for its complex of about twenty medieval Hindu and Jain temmples, the most extensive in India. The Khajuraho temples were built during the Chandella dynasty over a span of a hundred years, from 950 to 1050. They strike a perfect balance between Indo-Aryan architecture and sculpture. Their exquisite carvings, among the greatest masterpieces of Indian art, despict deities as well as the everyday life of the common Indians a milenium ago. However, what they are most famous for the 10% of sculptures that depict vividly sexual activities. The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
