The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is in Khajuraho, a town in
the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations
in India. Khajuraho has the largest group of medieval Hindu and Jain temples,
famous for their erotic sculptures.
The Khajuraho Group of Monuments has been listed as a UNESCO
World Heritage Site, and is considered to be one of the "seven
wonders" of India.
The Khajuraho temples contain some sexual or erotic art
outside the temple or near the deities. Also, some of the temples that have two
layers of walls have small erotic carvings on the outside of the inner wall.
There are many interpretations of these erotic carvings.
