Skywatch Friday - Kandariya Mahadeo Temple, Khajuraho

The small town of Khajuraho in central India is known for its erotic temples. Unfortunately, so. The temples are much more than that. In fact, there are very few erotic sculptures on the walls. But it is the beauty of the sculptures which is mesmerising. You can see similar refinement in the temples of Belur and Halebidu in Karnataka. The chiseled features of various gods and goddesses and maidens on the walls of Kandariya Mahadev temple - the largest in Khajuraho - is seen to be believed. We were there in October, 2011.

This picture was shot late in the afternoon. Few clouds were hanging in the sky. The best time to click pictures in Khajuraho is early in the morning. Go there when the temple complex open at 6.30 AM. Not many people will around and you can see the place in peace and click some lovely pictures too.
