Lakshmana Temple, Khajuraho

4.6
Standing on a tall platform, Lakshmana Temple invites you to witness exquisite Indian architecture adorned with intricate carvings of religious deities. Dedicated to Vaikuntha Vishnu, the structure features all the elements of Hindu temple design: it has an entrance porch, a pillared outdoor hall used for public rituals, a small antechamber, and a shrine. Head inside the shrine and find a three-headed and four-armed sculpture of Vaikuntha Vishnu. Though the construction date of the temple remains unknown, historians claim that it was between 930 and 950 BCE.

Where to stay in Khajuraho

The worldwide fame of the Khajuraho temples has given rise to a vibrant tourist industry; consequently, this relatively small town offers a range of accommodation facilities. Most hotels concentrate along the airport road and main temple road, varying from luxury international chains to low budget lodgings. Five-star deluxe outlets with spas, pools, landscape gardens, and views of temples tend to lie closer to the airport, while economy accommodations surround the eastern group of temples and follow the Khudar River. Some family-friendly, affordable establishments have good views of the temples, and a few of the mid-range hotels feature lovely rooftop restaurants.
