Situated in the heart of Central India, the eleventh century temples of Khajuraho rank amongst the architectural marvels of the world. The temples display a sculptural exuberance which qualitatively and quantitatively excels any other centre of monumental art in India. The book attempts to analyse the art of Khajuraho in its historical and cultural perspective.

But Khajuraho is perhaps best-known for its erotic art. The mystery of the erotic theme has also been explored, and various scholarly theories have been brilliantly examined by the author.

A distinguished scholar of Indian art, archaeology and architecture, Krishna Deva has distilled his decades of research and study into a lucid and detailed text. Darshan Lall, a specialist in sculptural and archaeological photography, has captured the sublime images of Khajuraho.
