When talking about the temple complexes in India, there is one name that can never be missed – Khajuraho. This small town, located in the Bundelkhand region, is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites for its Jain temples that were built between 950 and 1050. What makes this temple complex one of its kind is the erotic carvings that reflect Chandela dynasty's appreciation for the forbidden art of Kama Sutra.
