  • Were day and a half in Khajuraho, watching the afternoon the Jain temples, rising early to see tiger in Panna and evening enjoying the temples West (impressive!) and a small temple at 18:00 ceremony more or less. The people not worth much, some nice Lakes and restaurants, allows you to rest of grades them cities: accommodation in the Zostel, near the temples, more than enough. We supported in all the tour Anil and his brother Ravi Soni, that speaks in Spanish, through the company of the first Clck Tours Khajuraho

  • The temple contains more erotic sculptures. This is a beautiful temple near to Kanderiya Mahadeva Temple.
  • The Devi Jagadamba Temple is situated within the western group of temples in Khajuraho. Built in early 11th century, it is yet another brilliant example of ancient India's supreme standards of art and architecture.
  • A massive Jagdamba temple is the only female deity temple at Khajuraho.
  • Ancient and famous temple .
  • Nice place.
