Khajuraho: Kamasutra Temples of India

''Extreme erotica, royal scenes, battles, marriage, meditation: The temples flaunt them all!''

Hold On! If you think the temples in Khajuraho are inspired by Vatsyayana's Kamasutra, you are wrong. But the architecture in these temples, built between 950 and 1150, depict extreme erotica. After all, in mythology and in Kamasutra, any erotic description is considered auspicious. But, that’s not all. There are also royal scenes, battles, marriage, meditation that these temples flaunt.
So all in all, these temples are like a wide canvas and must be on your to-do-list if you want to know India and its history and culture.

Location of Khajuraho: In Chhatarpur district of Madhya Pradesh.

Tips from Triponomics Team : Ideal number of days: Around 2 days should be fine. If you have more time in hand, we suggest you do an extended trip. You could pick any of the following places - Panna National Park, Chanderi (known forts, palaces tombs, mosques and beautiful landscapes); Gwalior, Varanasi or Bandhavgarh

How to reach: Khajuraho Railway Station is just about 5km from the main Khajuraho Town. If you go from Delhi and want to drive, you can halt in Agra! By Air: You have to take a flight to City Airport Khajuraho. By Car : On road visit to Khajuraho is easiest for those living in Jhansi, Orchha, Satna, Katni, Bandhavgarh, Chattarpur etc. However, our recommendation is of course a train.

Ideal time to visit: October to March. You can stretch it to April too if you want to visit a tiger reserve as you get to see tigers mostly in summers.

Food Well, food here is definitely not a problem and you get a plethora of choices. Starting from delectable veggie preparations to chicken and mutton dishes, you get everything here. For a local experience, do try Bafla, which is made from whole grain and butter or desi ghee. It is typically served with dried beans and candies Do have it with Chaanch followed by laddo. If you are a non veggie, do try kababs, korma, rogan josh and chicken biryani (well, if not all at least whatever you can eat from here). For breakfast, do try piping hot paranthas with apple pickle. If you decide to travel in the summer months, do dig into fresh fruits like mangoes, watermelons, guavas & jamun. They will help you beat the heat. Of course, you also have South Indian, Chinese & even Spanish & French cuisine.

Restaurants you could try Raja’s Café, Blue Sky Restaurant, Madras Coffee House, Lassi Corner, Mediterraneo & Ganesh Restaurant.

For a complete relaxing experience: Many budget hotels offer wellness or ayurvedic massage treatments. Of course, not to mention the big budget hotels, they anyways have it.
