Stone carved statues at Khajuraho Temple complex. Khajuraho - Land Of The Moon God is located in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh (MP) and roughly 620 kilometers (385 miles) southeast of New Delhi. Khajuraho was the cultural capital of the Chandela Rajputs, a Hindu dynasty that ruled from the 10th to 12th centuries. The temples of Khajuraho are famous for their so-called "erotic sculptures". <br />
<br />
Symbolising a medieval legacy, the Khajuraho temples are a perfect fusion of architectural and sculptural excellence, representing one of the finest examples of Indian art. To some, they are the most graphic, erotic and sensuous sculptures the world has ever known. But Khajuraho has not received the attention it deserves for its significant contribution to the religious art of India - there are literally hundreds of exquisite images on the interior and exterior walls of the shrines.
