Khajuraho

Location

History

Khajuraho is a world renowned tourist destination and a UNESCO world heritage site. It is of infinite historical and archaeological importance to the world. There is much more to the temples in Khajuraho than their erotica. Each layer of these grand creations conveys a meaningful story. The main complex has temples dedicated to Shiva, Vishnu and Laxmana, and this complex is the most popular out of all three. For a beautiful and engaging lesson in the city's 1000-year old history one must attend the daily Light and Sound Show. Narrated by Amitabh Bachchan, the one hour show covers the mystical stories attached to the creations as well as their historical past.

Cuisine

Because Khajuraho draws people from all over the world, global influences on the city's menu can be seen vividly. From Japanese to Israeli and other global favourites are all available in Khajuraho's cafes and restaurants. But for a taste of the region's signature flavours, one should find a good homestay in the area and drop in.

Language

The language spoken by the locals is mostly Hindi but people involved in the hospitality industry are fluent in English as well.

Attrctions

Khajuraho is a small city and its main attraction is the temples with erotica on the walls. Other than the 3 temple complexes a handful of charming restaurants there isn't much to see here.
