About the book

This book is about Khajuraho. The architectural site of Khajuraho is without question one of the most beautiful in India. And yet, of the eighty or so temples which were built on this site, only twenty five have survived the effects of time and destruction. It is difficult to recapture the splendor of this sacred city at the height of its glory, alive with the ceaseless animation of a religious centre and the murmur of the puja, punctuated by the din of sacred orchestras. What remains today is scattered, often in ruins and lost in the unbroken silence of a semi jungle. Owing to the efforts of the archaeological survey of India those temples which are still intact retain an allure so magnificent that one is overwhelmed by the immensity of such a phenomenon of which only the traces have come down to us but the extent of which we can estimate from that which still exists.
