Travelogue: By Country | By Date India | May 2001  

May 2001 - Khajuraho's West Temple Group Continued

Though known for some sexually explicit sculptures that have shocked and titillated generations of tourists, the setting and other sculptures are wonderful

This is the best picture we have of how the bands of sculpture relate to the over all temple structure The temples are on elevated platforms.  This is sometimes dangerous when one is looking at sculptures and walking backwards to get a better view. This gives a good idea of the repetition in the sculptures - even many of the explicit ones.
Nice place for a nap
