About This Book

    8th century A.D. has been the era of recordings. Many Hindu temples, dedicated mostly to The Sun God, depicts erotic figurines on the walls and surfaces of temples. The architecture of these temples is followed and highlighted in the temple complexes of Khajuraho built in a time gap of 100 years between 950 A.D-1050 A.D by the kings of Chandella dynasty. Khajuraho architecture reflects the tantric cult followed during those times similar to the Vajrayana Buddhism, Jainism, Chandali yoga tantra, Tantraraja tantra etc. The artistic culture of Khajuraho reflects more of the local tribal traditions and lifestyles in contrast to the conventional temple architecture of India. Many authors tried to identify the true motive behind this erotic architecture and ended up explaining it from a philosophical point of view, but the true meaning of this iconography could be otherwise.
