The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is a group of Hindu temples and Jain temples in Chhatarpur district, Madhya Pradesh, India, about 175 kilometres southeast of Jhansi. Khajuraho temples were built during the Chandela Empire between 950 – 1050 A.D. They are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Khajuraho temples are famous for their nagara-style architectural symbolism and their erotic sculptures.
The temples of Khajuraho are divided into three divisions – western, eastern and southern. The Western group is home to the largest and most typical Khajuraho temple, dedicated to Kandariya Mahadev. The images of Goddesses and Gods sculpted on the temple walls represent the many manifestations of the divine Shakti and Shiva, the female and male principles, the Yin and the Yang.
