Khajuraho Things to Do: 150 reviews and 361 photos


Many of the carved panels around the temples have depictions of Mithuna (loving or embracing couples). Some of these were quite erotic and were believed to celebrate marriage as well as being auspicious symbols of fertility. These types of carvings seem to visualize all the positions of the Kamasutra and are very common on a lot of Indian Temples.
