Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh, India

Had a few days here to see the famous exotic carvings and temples that are a world heritage sight. The numerous temples, dating back to the 10th century, have great examples of very artistic sculptures all the way around the temples. They show numerous gods, warriors and women in lots of poses and dances.

The temples are spread out across the village in a few different groups. I cycled out through the old village to see the Jain temples, where there was a contrast of the old temples against ones that have been restored and painted. Inside the temple here is me in front of the jet black marble sculpture at the centre.

By the old village I stopped by the Narora Sagar (lake) to see some locals fishing. This young boy had caught a small bag of these fish.
