Best Time To Visit Khajuraho / Best Seasom / peak season : September - March
Khajuraho derives its name from the Khajur tree (the date palm tree) found in abundance in the area. The temples are superb examples of Indo-Aryan architecture, built in the short span of a hundred years, under the generous and artistic patronage of the Chandela Rajput kings of Central India in a truly inspired burst of creativity. In the temple architecture of India, the Khajuraho complex remains unique. Khajuraho is located in the forested plains of Madhya Pradesh in the Bundelkhand region.
