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!
