The exotic temples of Khajuraho, built between the tenth and twelfth centuries are considered to be the greatest architectural achievement of the Chandela dynasty. After years of abandonment, the temples were restored (and are continuing to be restored) to their former glory and are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Of the original 80 temples that were once constructed just over 20 remain, scattered amongst the 20km square of parkland that makes up the sight. Today will be spent with a local guide exploring the temples.
