Khajuraho is located in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, in Chhatarpur district, about 620 km (385 mi) southeast of New Delhi. Khajuraho is a historic place, where UNESCO World Heritage Sites Khajuraho Group of Monuments, often celled Sex Temples, located. Those temples were built during the rule of the Rajput Chandela dynasty and complete between 970 to 1030 CE. Until 12th century, the temples were visited and worshiped by many. By 13th century, the army of Muslim attacked and seized the Chandela kingdom, and the temples were partly destroyed and totally lost in the jungle.
In 1838, local Hindus guided a British amy engineer, T.S. Burt, to the temples and they were rediscovered by the world. Of the original 85 temples only 22 survive today, some are in poor condition. Even though the Khajuraho Group of Monuments often are called the India sex temples, there is only 10% of the art work that has sexual or erotic themes. A common explanation for having those erotic artworks on the temples is that the sculptures in Khajuraho temples are designed to show all aspects of the everyday life and sex is also a part of the human life. And therefor those beautiful erotic artworks had been carved on the temples.
