The origin behind the sculptures and beautiful temples sounds a little fictitious but is real. Some thousand years before, a girl was having a bath near a pond in Khajuraho. One of the Gods was watching her from the heaven. He made his way to the land to meet the girl. Their meeting was accompanied with the feelings of lust and passion and this is how the sculptures and beautiful temples came into existence. The famous Khajuraho temples were built by the Chandravarman, the son of the girl who had a meeting with the god. He created these temples to show the whole world the existence and importance of love.

Later, the Khajuraho temples booked their place in the list of the most visited place in India by foreign tourists next to the Taj Mahal. Love is not the only feeling depicted by these sculptures but music and dance is also the theme for the creation of the sculptures and paintings in the Khajuraho. The Khajuraho temples are built having the excellent artworks. Spiral superstructures form the basis for the construction of the temples. The Panchayatana plan is most widely implemented during the construction of temples and fortunately, the temples follow the plan very well. The temples have the sandstones as the main ingredient used in the buildings. Sandstones are the ones which are too rare to be found and the works on the walls of the temples enhance the beauty of the temples. The realistic sculptures of the Khajuraho temples are worth noticing and interestingly, they are still taken into the research of archaeological studies.
