Khajuraho holidays

A thousand years ago, in the heart of India, artisans of the Chandela dynasty built the spectacular temples at Khajuraho, which were to become renowned for their exquisite carvings and erotic sculptures. The sculptures, which were rediscovered by an English soldier in 1839, are said to portray the rite of creation in which both body and soul are involved. Of the original 85 temples, only 22 now survive, but they represent some of the finest examples of temple architecture in northern India. The temples, with their myriad graceful forms, are an outstanding example of Indo- Aryan architecture. Every March, this otherwise sleepy town, comes to life for the annual festival of dance, when maestros of various Indian classical dance forms and their disciples perform against the dramatic temple backdrop.
