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.
