Plan Your Khajuraho Vacation

The UNESCO World Heritage Site temples of Khajuraho are known for their carved erotic images, but they are also examples of advanced architecural styles. The soaring shikharas (spires) of the temples are meant to resemble the peaks of the Himalayas, the abode of Lord Shiva. The spire of each temple rises higher than the one before it, as in a range of mountains that seems to draw near the heavens. Designed to inspire the viewer toward the highest human potential, these were also the builders' attempts to reach upward, out of the material world, to moksha, the final release from the cycle of rebirth. It's definitely worth a visit here, though getting to Khajuraho is not easy.
