The temples at khajuraho were built during the Chandela dynasty,which reached its apogee between 950 and 1050.Only about 20 temples remain; they fall into three distinct groups and belong to two different religions: Hinduism and Jainism. They strike a perfect balance between architecture and sculpture. The Temple of Kandariya is decorated with a profusion of sculptures that are among the greatest masterpieces of Indian art.
