Temples of Khajuraho in Northern Madhya Pradesh mark a peak of human creativity in the fields of sculpture and architecture, that occurred from 8th to 12th century AD in middle India. The basic thought of building huge temples with erotic yet extremely tastefully created artwork seems to mark a departure from the commonly held belief that sex and nudity is something that cannot mix with temples and spirituality. Khajuraho is a place that everyone must visit at least once in a life time. All photographs in the article were taken by the author. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
