Situated between Agra and Varanasi at a remote site nestled away from the ancient highways and thoroughfares, KHAJURAHO kept hiding one of India’s most magnificent archeological secrets in its dense green jungle for almost a thousand years.

Now a small town in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur district, the ancient temple town of Khajuraho was discovered by British archeologists in 1838.

A UNESCO World Heritage site with 25 stunning temples of Hindu and Jain origin famous all over the world for erotic stone carvings and graphic sexual imagery, Khajuraho has become a magnet for archeology enthusiasts and general tourists from India and the rest of the world.

Built over a 20 square kilometer area, the temple town built in Nagara-style architecture with graphic erotic sculptures is attributed to the CHANDELA DYNASTY (950-1050 AD).

A fusion of Hindu and Jain imagery and symbolism suggests that the Chandela era was a time of peaceful coexistence with a pluralistic society.

As to why these temples were built with such intense sexual imagery, historians believe these are depictions of the sacred work KAMA SUTRA and an attempt to entertain the gods.

Our customized tours with in-house travel guides & advisors, expert historians and archaeologists stand out from the rest. With us, you can be sure of 24/7 guidance and support.

LUXURY DESTINATIONS IN KHAJURAHO

Khajuraho is situated off the beaten path in a remote part of India which has slipped under the radar so far.

In recent years, however, a large number of Indian and international tourists visit the temple town to marvel at its exotic ancient stone art.

Proximity to the PANNA NATIONAL PARK which offers wildlife adventure and to the Paneh and PANDA WATER FALLS and other nature trails in the Vindhya Mountain range has further added to the attraction of Khajuraho.

Now you can combine an adventure with an ancient culture and heritage tour and vice versa.

To cater to both kinds of travelers, a string of 5-star luxury hotels and resorts have emerged in the region, not far from the local airport and the temples.

Resplendent Travel LLP selects the best luxury accommodations for you in Khajuraho to make sure that your stay is hassle-free and checks all the boxes of comfort and elegance.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend that two to three days will be enough to browse the entire 20-square-kilometer complex.

But since you are in the region anyway, it won’t be a bad idea to spare a day each for a trek at the nearby Pandav or Raneh Water Falls or go on a wildlife Safari tour in Panna National Park.

The ideal time to visit is during the winter season (October-February). The weather is pleasant enough for temple tours and treks to the nearby waterfalls.

However, some of the best wildlife and tiger spotting takes place in the summer—for which, you will have to brave the summer heat and humidity.

Yes. The site is quite famous now and gets tens of thousands of travelers from all over the world. But as with anywhere else, it is important to take precautions and travel responsibly.

Avoid skimpy revealing clothes. Dress appropriately. A shirt and a pair of trousers or jeans are fine.

The temples date back to the CHANDELLA DYNASTY (950-1050 AD) which was overrun by the Delhi Sultanate in the latter half of the 11th century AD.
