Nestled among the valleys and ravines of Bundelkhand stands ‘Khajuraho’, once the capital of the Chandellas in early medieval times. The temples stand today as a testimony to the rich and prosperous days of Chandella realm, representing a distinct pattern of art and temple architecture of its own.
A visitor in many ways can appreciate Khajuraho. As a scholar, as a connoisseur of art, as a social historian or as a common man who finds in Khajuraho an equation for the inter-relationship of religion and intricacies of life rendered in winsome sculpture by the gifted artists of the Chandella days. The temples of Khajuraho stand as if in celebration of the union of Shiva and Parvati, which is the ultimate goal of life.
The UNESCO bestowed the status of World Cultural Heritage Site to Khajuraho in the year 1986.
