Khajuraho (from Hindi, “khajur” for date palm) is a city in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, 620 kilometres southeast of Delhi. The city was once the religious capital of the Chandela Rajputs, a Hindu dynasty that ruled this part of India from the 10th to the 12th centuries. Now, Khajuraho is a small town with a vibrant history. The Khajuraho temple complex is the largest group of historical Hindu temples, complete with famous erotic sculptures. The temples were built over a span of 100 years and are now listed as one of the Seven Wonders of India and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
