The temples at Khajuraho were built during the Chandella
dynasty, which reached its apogee between 950 and 1050. Only about 20
temples remain; they fall into three distinct groups and belong to two
different religions – Hinduism and Jainism. They strike a perfect
balance between architecture and sculpture. The Temple of Kandariya is
decorated with a profusion of sculptures that are among the greatest
masterpieces of Indian art.
