Khajuraho Tour Packages

Khajuraho tour packages are sought after tours in India. No upcountry traveller can afford to miss the Khajuraho temples which are among the most beautiful sanctuaries in the Gangetic Valley. Khajuraho was the famous capital of the Chandela dynasty, which flourished in the tenth century and is celebrated in the songs of the poet Chand. It is in the heart of Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh. The town of Khajuraho has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The city is famous for its imperial temples. The temples were built by the rulers of the Chandela dynasty between 10th and 11th century. The construction of the temple just took about 100 years to complete. There were about 85 temples in the area, but now only 22 exist. Rest of the temples is nothing more than ruins. They have gained popularity because of the erotic sculptures engraved on the walls. However, these sculptures cover only a small part. The important part of sculptures is depicting the daily life of people in rural India.

Khajuraho tour is synonymous with exploration of Kamasutra temples. Nothing remains of the past magnificence of the place but the thirty odd stone-built beautiful temples bespeak the wealth and glory of its rulers in the past. These temples are treasures of architectural perfection exemplifying the breadth of vision and vastness of sympathy evinced in the construction of shrines dedicated to Shaiv, Vaishnav and Jain deities. The temples in Khajuraho can easily be termed as holy mountains of masonry. Every inch of these temples is covered with carving but nothing haphazard or superfluous about it. Each scrap of sculpture serves an appointed purpose, contributes its quota towards the majesty of the edifice as a whole. The subject of sculptures and the finesse imply that the Indian builder was a preacher as well as a creator. The selection of material, architecture, graceful pillars and profusion of sculpture collectively accomplish a two-fold task – not only raising a building consecrated to the religion, but also by the manner in which one stone upon another is laid , the builder exemplified the tenets of that religion. The richness of sculptural beauty can be gauged by the fact that the Kandariya Mahadev Temple possesses, as General Cunningham counted, no less than eight hundred and seventy- two statues, ranging from two and a half to three feet in height. The great halls or the ‘madapams’, forming the approach to the shrines, lend a human touch to the archaeology of Khajuraho. In these vestibules, theatrical and musical performances, dancing and public meetings used to take place.

Since Khajuraho is located on the northern edge of central India, most of the Khajuraho tours are woven into north India tour packages. Many a times, Khajuraho is incorporated as an extension to Golden Triangle Tour India. Tourism is the mainstay of the economy of the temples town. As Khajuraho is a popular tourist spot, it offers a multitude of accommodation establishments in the form of two luxury hotels and budget. Luxury hotels offer services that meet international standards. Most of the hotels in Khajuraho are strategically located at locations that are well connected by road to the railway station, bus station and airport. They also provide a host of amenities and offer decent services for tourists. Hence, Khajuraho temple tour can be availed with options of all categories of hotels.
