The fact that the nearest major railhead is 175 kilometers (null miles) distant confirms Khajuraho's status as a remote location in Central India. It's not strange, then, that these temples remained concealed in impenetrable woodlands for decades, until a British military adventurer chose to follow a local's advice and take a detour to visit them. It was the year 1838. The rest, as they say, is history. Khajuraho's sexual temples are as iconic of India as the Taj Mahal for many. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of these temples represents the apex of two art forms: sculpture and architecture. These temples were constructed for a century, from 950 to 1050 CE, in an inspired rush of creativity.

History of  Khajuraho

The Khajuraho temples are located in the Kalinjar region, about 35 miles from Mahoba, the Chandela dynasty's medieval capital. In ancient and medieval literature, their kingdom was known as Jijhoti, Jejahoti, Chih-chi-to, and Jejakabhukti.

Xuanzang, a Chinese traveler, first mentioned Khajuraho in 641, when he recorded visiting several dozen idle Buddhist monasteries and a dozen Hindu temples with a thousand worshipping brahmins. In 1022 CE, Abu Rihan-al-Biruni, a Persian historian who accompanied Mahmud of Ghazni on his expedition to Kalinjar, describes Khajuraho as the capital of Jajahuti; he mentions Khajuraho as the capital of Jajahuti. The raid failed, and a peace agreement was achieved when the Hindu ruler agreed to pay a ransom to Mahmud of Ghazni in exchange for him ending the attack and leaving.

The temples of Khajuraho were in use until the end of the 12th century. After the armies of the Delhi Sultanate, led by Muslim Sultan Qutb-ud-din Aibak, conquered and annexed the Chandela kingdom in the 13th century, this changed. Ibn Battuta, a Moroccan traveler who lived in India from 1335 to 1342 AD, described visiting Khajuraho temples in his chronicles, referring to them as Kajarraas  follows:
Khajuraho was ruled by Hindu kings until the 12th century, and it had 85 temples. In the 13th century, the Delhi Sultanate invaded Central India. Many temples were destroyed and the others were left in disrepair during Muslim control. Some historic temple ruins (such as the Ghantai temple above) can still be seen.

A handful of yogis with matted locks as long as their bodies dwell near (Khajuraho) temples that have idols that have been mutilated by Moslems. They are all yellow due to their extreme asceticism. Many Moslems come to these men to receive yoga classes from them.

From the 13th century through the 18th century, numerous Muslim kings ruled the central Indian region where the Khajuraho monuments are located. Some temples were desecrated during this time, after which they were neglected for a long time. Sikandar Lodi's campaign of temple destruction, for example, includes Khajuraho in 1495 AD. The Hindu and Jain temples were spared further damage by Muslims because of Khajuraho's distance and isolation. The temples were overgrown by trees and woodlands throughout the years.

Local Hindus led a British surveyor, T.S. Burt, to the temples in the 1830s, and the temples were thus rediscovered by a global audience.  A few years after the discoveries, Alexander Cunningham stated that the temples were surreptitiously used by yogis and that thousands of Hindu pilgrims would gather for Shivaratri, which is celebrated yearly in February or March according to the lunar calendar. F.C. Maisey drew the first drawings of the Khajuraho temples in 1852.


Khajuraho, also known as Kharjuravhaka, is a name derived from ancient Sanskrit (kharjura, which means date palm, and Dhaka, which means "one who carries" or bearer According to mythology, the temples had two golden date-palm trees as their entrance (missing when they were rediscovered). Kharjuravhaka, according to Desai, also means scorpion bearer, which is another symbolic name for Shiva (who wears snakes and scorpion garlands in his fierce form.

In the 1850s and 1860s, Cunningham's nomenclature and systematic documentation efforts were extensively embraced and are still in use today. He divided the temples into three groups: the Western group, the Eastern group, and the Southern group, which included Lakshmana, Javeri, and Duladeva.

Only roughly 25 temples have remained, covering a total area of six square kilometers.

How did the Khajuraho temple come to be?

The temples of Khajuraho were constructed during the Chandella dynasty, which reigned from 950 to 1050. There are just about 20 temples left, divided into three groups and belonging to two separate religions: Hinduism and Jainism. They achieve the ideal combination of architecture and sculpture.

Why Isn't Khajuraho known as the "City of God"?
