Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece – Temples of Khajuraho

27 Jul

When I came across this topic, I was instantly reminded of the world famous temples of Khajuraho. These Hindu and Jain temples are situated in Madhya Pradesh, India ย and mostly known for the erotica carvings. This is listed as a UNESCO world heritage sight and one of the seven wonders in India.

    I guess I am going to have to go back to India one of these days. Do you actually drive around yourself??? One of my Bengali friends refuses to even think about driving there–I suggested we go on a road trip.

      You should definitely visit again. People do drive around but I don’t. However renting a car with a driver is relatively cheap in India, so its pretty comfortable ๐Ÿ™‚
