Khajuraho is a village southeast of Delhi. It is most famous for the group of medieval Hindu and Jain temple monuments. Khajuraho was one of the capitals of the Chandela kings. It contained about 85 temples built through the 11th century, of which about 20 remain. They were rediscovered in the 19th century after neglect and jungle overgrowth. The most outstanding feature of these temples is the extravagant carving on the spiral superstructure. On the outside the carvings depict both the sensual and the everyday life of the Indian people at the time.
