The beautiful temples that dot the town of Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh are famed largely for their sensual and erotic sculptures – however, the truth is that sexual themes cover less than 10% of the temple sculpture. Built between 950-1050 AD by the Chandela Dynasty, these temples depict various themes like spiritual teachings, sport, royalty and human life and values as prescribed by Hinduism and Jainism. The stunning displays of exceptional artistic and architectural skills make these temples one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India – they portray some of the finest temple art in the world. The Western Group of Temples is highlighted by the Kandariya Mahadeo, dedicated to Lord Shiva, and the largest and most beautifully carved of Khajuraho’s temples. The temple of Devi Jagdamba is considered by many to be one of the most erotic temples of Khajuraho. It showcases Khajuraho’s most talked-about images of mithuna – sensuously carved figures in various acts of lovemaking. The temple of Parsvanath is the largest of the Jain temples in Khajuraho, and the finest – here, the sexual motifs are nowhere to be seen.
