Records show that out of the 85 temples only 22 have survived and are spread over an area of 6 square kilometers. Khajuraho is one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in India.
The beautifully carved statues in the temples display various aspects of life and the values that are considered important. While being famous for the erotic art the sexual theme does not cover more than 10% of the sculptures. There is a proper balance between the erotic and non- sexual images. The viewer has to look closely or have to be directed by a guide to find them.
