Here's an image of a divine couple, set in a prominent niche in the temple's exterior. These images show the same sort of erotic mood found in many of Khajuraho's other sculptures. Based on the beard and the heads on each side of the male image are of Brahma and Sarasvati.
Hindus recognize that sexuality is an important facet of human life and even more so for husbands and wifes and continues to the present day, although people in contemporary Indian society express it far less openly than these images.

Address: Western Group Temple Khajuraho Madhaya Pradesh
Directions: This temple is at the northwest edge of the western group.
