Kharujaho Temples Group, Kharujaho, India

The Khajuraho temples group is a group of Hindu temples and Jain temples in Khajurado, Chhatarpur district, Madhya Pradesh, India. The temples are famous for their nagara-style architectural symbolism and their erotic sculptures. Most Khajuraho temples were built between 950 AD and 1050 AD by the Chandela dynasty. The Khajuraho temples are made of sandstone, with a granite foundation that is almost concealed from view. The temples feature a variety of artwork, of which 10% is sexual or erotic art outside and inside the temples. The complex is broadly divided into three parts: the Eastern group, the Southern Group and the Western group.
