The Khajuraho Temples in Madhya Pradesh are one of the most celebrated and iconic historical monuments in the country. The Khajuraho Group of Monuments in Madhya Pradesh were built during the Chandela rule from the 9th to the 11th Century. The temples are known for their exquisite carvings and magnificent architecture and are truly one of the most treasured Indian heritages. The Western group of Temples is one of the three divisions of the monument; the other two being the Eastern and the Southern Group of Temples.

Main Attractions of Western Group of Temple

Some of the most marvelous temples of the Western Group are as follows:
1. Devi Mandap, a small shrine located right opposite the great Lakshman Temple.
2. Varaha Mandap stands elevated above the ground with 14 short pillars that support the high pyramidal roof capped with a Kalash.
3. Lakshman Temple, built by the Chandela rulers, is one of the three largest temples of Khajurao. The Lakshman Temple stands like a giant mountain of stone at the centre and is unique in Khajuraho for its four subsidiary shrines at the four corners of its rectangular platform. The large erotic sculptures adorning the main body of the temple are placed, as in all the other temples in Khajuraho, on the south and north sides, between the two balconies.
4. Kandariya Mahadev Temple is the largest and the most magnificent of all temples and is famous for its elegance and sculptural detailing.
5. Mahadev Shrine houses a small pillared porch and sanctum. There are two rampant lion figures on the platform of the Kandariya Mahadev and Devi temples.
6. Devi Jagadambi Temple has some of the loveliest sculptures in Khajuraho, and because of its medium height, most of them are easily visible. Apart from the normal repertoire of female figures applying make-up and preening themselves, there are a number of depictions of lovers embracing and these are tucked away in the recesses and shadows of the temple.
