Khajuraho "the Temples of Love": The erotic sculptures

Khajuraho temples are famous for their erotic arts.

The walls of the temples of Khajuraho have a rich display of intricately carved sculptures. Although temples of Khajuraho are famed for the sex sculptures, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples sculpture. Moreover, most sexual images are in proportional balance with the non- sexual images. The images are covering numerous aspects of human life and values are major in Hindu pantheon.
