"Sothern group is having three popular temples"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Khajuraho a world famous tourist place. It's known for its Indian Art expression through sculptures mostly on outer wall and Chaturbhuj temple is exception neither having the erotic images nor facing the East it's the facing The West. The most popular temple is Dulhadeo and Chaturbhuj for its unique Idol as Beejamandal is under excavation. ASI have opened the temple's ruins for the visitors. It's considered to be the largest and having few spectacular erotic images. It's considered to be Vaidyanath temple.

Easily can be accessed from the Eastern group and Dulhadeo one will love to visit as its surroundings are well developed. It's also known as Kunwar Math. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva the God of Bride And Groom. All temples belongs to the Chandelas glorious period ei 950 AD to 1050 AD. Chandela Rulers were mostly remain patron of Lord Shiva as Shiva was their family deity.

Complete Southern group is having free entry and all are managed by ASI. Remain open since Sun Rise to Sunset.

Near the Western group visitors will find many good restaurants of multi cousins, Vegetarian, and even many Italian Restaurants to enjoy the various taste. Badri Seth Marwari Bhoj is very popular among the visitors.

There are many good Hotels from high budget to low budget like Ramda, Chandela, Clark's etc. Railway's holiday home, Plaza etc.

Many attractions are very close to the Southern group like Eastern groups temples etc.
Auto rickshaws, bicycle on rents, motorcycles on rents and luxury cabs are also available on reasonable prices.
The best season to visit these temples is Oct-Feb

Its a must visit place as to enjoy the remarkable artwork and the expressiveness of the artists and the Chandela glorious period as well their dedication and a clips of religious harmony too.

"One of the best architecture temples I have seen"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 4, 2016
The Southern group of temples in Khajuraho is located slightly away from the other groups of temples. Southern group of temples consists of Duladeo temple, Chaturbhuj temple and Mandala temple. Chaturbhuj temple is the only temple in Khajuraho devoid of any erotic carvings. Duladeo temple is the most popular temple in the southern group of temples in Khajuraho.

"Spread out all over"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 6, 2016
The Southern Group Of Temples are spread out all over the village. The whole village and its streets, school, lake, pond and sandstone sculpture factory are seen on the way.

I took an auto-rickshaw for Rs. 400 for 4 hours. The driver Mr. Raju knows English and can guide to all the temples. He plans his own route with a budget place for my lunch. It is a little back breaking with no road at all in few places.

One can hire a taxi too for double the fare. It is all fixed by tourism department. Any driver shows that sheet and fixes the fare. No bargaining.

Only thing the driver wanted to take me to Shilpagram folk dance show and get his commission which I could not oblige.
