A Temple in Khajuraho

Khajuraho, a quiet village in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, is home to one of India’s major attractions – the superb temples of Indo-Aryan architecture. These temples were built during the Chandella period, a dynasty which survived for five centuries before falling to the onslaught of Islam. Khajuraho’s temples, almost all, date from one century long burst of creative genius from 950-1050 AD.
