KHAJURAHO

Khajuraho

 

Khajuraho, the temple city of central India, is famous throughout the world for its exquisitely carved temples in stones. Thousands of visitors and tourists from all over the world flock together to envisage this immortal saga of Hindu art and culture engraved in stone by shilpies (stone craftsmen) a millennia ago.Travel Agents in delhi,India Travel Agents,Tour Operators in India

Today, apart from the temples, Khajuraho is a small village but a thousand years ago it was a large city of the Chandelas, medieval Rajput kings who ruled over Central India.

Khajuraho is 595 km (370 miles) south-east of Delhi and can be visited by air, rail or road. An overnight train journey from Delhi takes the visitor to Jhansi, from where another morning train takes him to Harpalpur 85 km (53 miles) to the east.

Travel information:

By air : A daily Boeing 737 service links Khajuraho with Delhi, Agra, Varanasi, and Kathmandu.

By rail : The nearest railheads are Jhansi (172 km), Satna (117 km) which are linked to Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta and Chennai. From Jhansi and Satna one can take buses or taxis to Khajuraho.

By road : Khajuraho is connected by regular buses with Satna, Harpalpur, Jhansi and Mahoba.

The divine sculptures in these temples, are a tribute to life itself. Embodying everything that is sublime and spontaneous. The murals depict the life and times of the Chandelas, while celebrating the erotic state of being. They not only testify to the mastery of the craftsman, as also to the vision of the Chandela Rajputs.

Must watching

The Western Group of Temples :

Chaunsat Yogini : This is the oldest of the surviving temples of Khajuraho. It is dedicated to goddesses Kali and is the only temple that is built in granite.

The Kandariya Mahadeo : This is considered the most evolved example of central Indian temple architecture. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is the largest of Khajuraho temples.

The Lakshmana Temple : This is one of the oldest and finest of the western group of temples. Themes recurring in the sculptures are battle, hunting, and women.

The temple of Vishwanath and Nandi : Celebrates the marriage of Lord Shiva with Parvati. The sculptures are dominated by women in various attitudes of life like fondling babies and writing letters.

The temple of Devi Jagdamba : This is considered to be one of the most erotic temples of Khajuraho by many. It has the most talked-about image, mithuna, and the sensuously carved figures.

Other important temples in the western group are the temples of Lakshmi and Varaha, Mahadev, Chitragupta, Parvati, and Matangesvara.

Eastern Group of Temples :

The temple of Parsvanath : This is the largest of the Jain temples in Khajuraho. It was originally dedicated to Adinath and later to Parsvanath.

Shantinath : This is the youngest of all the temples in Khajuraho. It is just a century old and has a big statue of Adinath.

The temple of Brahma and Hanuman : This is one of the oldest temples in Khajuraho. It is built mostly of granite and sandstone and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Mostly in ruins now, the temple of Ghantai has fine columns and chains and bells, with a figure of a Jain goddess on a garuda.

The Southern Group :

The southern group only has two temples, the Duladeo which is newer and built when the creativity of Khajuraho was deteriorating. The Chaturbhuja Temple has a 3-m-high statue of Vishnu.
