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.
