Khajuraho Temples (in Madhya Pradesh) are among the most lovely medieval monuments in the country. These temples were designed by the Chandella rulers between AD 900 and 1130. it had been the golden period of Chandella rulers. it’s likely that each Chandella ruler has designed a minimum of one temple in his lifetime. therefore all Khajuraho Temples aren’t constructed by any single Chandella ruler, rather building Temples was a tradition of Chandella rulers and followed by most rulers of Chandella dynasty. The Khajuraho group of Monuments is a group of Hindu and jain temples in Madhya Pradesh (in Chhatarpur district), concerning a hundred seventy five kilometres (109 mi) southeast of Jhansi.

These Temples got the status of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1986.


Khajuraho: History

Inscriptions at the Khajuraho temples indicate that these shrines were made from the period of 950 to 1050 AD. the development of the temple is attributed to the rulers of the Chandela dynasty. it’s believed that the temple site, covering a neighborhood of twenty sq. kilometer had around eighty five temples throughout the 12th-century. However, only twenty five temples out of those have managed to defy the test of time and survive until date. These temples are spread across a neighborhood of 6 sq. km today.

It’s interesting to note that the Khajuraho cluster of temples are linked to 2 religions – Jainism and Hinduism. The Kandariya Mahadeva Temple is the largest and the most renowned one in all the surviving temples. it’s adorned with innumerable sculptures exhibiting intricate details that mirror the richness of ancient Indian architecture.

Khajuraho: architecture

The Khajuraho temples feature Nagara-style of subject field symbols. they’re best famous for the erotic sculptures that adorn the temple walls. designed upon granite foundations, these temples are created using sandstone. Like most Hindu temples, the shrines at Khajuraho follow the Vastu-Purusha-Mandala design plan.

Another characteristic feature of those temples is that the sculptures are organized in symmetric repeating arrangements, even though each image is exclusive. extremely ornate carvings adorn the

walls, pillars, ceilings of those temples. many panels and sculptures in these temples have inscriptions. barring one, each temple at Khajuraho faces the east and has an entrance in this direction.
