Engineering Marvels: Temples of Khajuraho
Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh was a cultural capital of the Chandelas of Bundelkhand
There’s something about being around temples that are over 800 years old that make you pause—a sense of timelessness, intrigue about a lost world and humility in the face of true craft and skill. And when those temples famously portray explicit sculptures, it’s enough to make you stop entirely. And when the dynasty began to decline, so did Khajuraho’s importance. The temples were swallowed up by the surrounding jungle until they were rediscovered in the 1800s. Today, the otherwise nondescript town is a popular for its magnificent temples, now a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
