Khajuraho India

the Times of India (TOI) News paper carried out a SMS poll, from 21st July to 31 July 2007, to vote for

the seven greatest wonders of India.

Khajuraho, a series of Hindu and Jain temples built from 950-1050,  was no. 7.

Khajuraho stands out for its

erotic sculpture

and also ordinary lives of Indians at that time.

Scholars say that they portray that sexual desires and other worldly lust should be left outside when visiting the deities contained inside the temple’s often dark undecorated chambers.
