Khajuraho is an obscure little village in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It would have remained so if not for its group of marvellous temples, chiselled by the finest craftsmen. Though it is a little known fact that eroticism forms a very small proportion of the entire sculptural genius, these temples remain famous for this very theme. And if you have ever wondered, why eroticism on such places on sanctity, why on earth so far away from civilization, this book is an insight to what Khajuraho is all about. Brimming with photographs, especially shot to capture the unusual facets of the temples, it gives information on the temple architecture, distinguishing details of each of the temples, peppered with a historical background. At the heart of the book is an in-depth look into the religious and social backdrop that inspired such bold and uninhibited representation of erotica. A vivid illustration points to the surviving architectural high points to the surviving architectural high points that you must visit. A true legacy in stone, you have to see it to believe it!
