  • This was the first temple we visited in our recent trip. The temple is majestic and well maintained. Do give these temples time when visiting because they have a lot of history to narrate 
  • 不曉得古代印度的工匠是怎麼做的,可以把雕像作得如此生動豐富,靠近一點看,無論是面部表情,身體的線條,衣服的皺褶,無一不是一絲不苟,經得起細細地觀賞,尤其經過歲月的洗禮,更增添一股神祕色彩。 
  • We caught a very erudite and in love with my job Guide. It would seem we have satisfied their curiosity to the temples of Khajuraho in the Western Group, perefotografirovali all carved masterpieces, but he led us back to one temple. Here no people can be photographed without waiting for the queue, the temple itself smaller than the temples of the Western Group, but here, carving its skilful light dresses and stuns the imagination. We gladly sat on the warm stones of the temple room, in the peace and quiet of the place.
