A Heritage site of worldly importance: The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is a group of Hindu and Jain temples about 175 kilometres, south-east of Jhansi. They are one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India.

The captivating past: "The temples of Khajuraho were built by the rulers of the Chandela dynasty between the 10th and the 12th centuries," says Hrish Thota. The largest and most famous surviving temple is Kandariya Mahadeva built in the reign of King Ganda from 1017-1029 CE. The temple inscriptions suggest the surviving temples were complete between 970 and 1030 CE. In the 1830s, local Hindus guided a British surveyor, T.S. Burt, to the temples and they were thus rediscovered by the global audience and In 1852, Maisey prepared the earliest drawings of the temples.
