Lakshmana Temple

The Lakshmana Temple is one of the three biggest temples of the whole temple complex of Khajuraho and belongs to the western group of temples. This temple stands like a mountain among all other over here and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple is mainly known for its grandeur and the variety of carvings on it. If you take a clockwise round around the temple, the carvings will seem to be opening like a scroll of awesome stories. The temple dates back to the reign of the Chandela King Varahavarmana and it faces the Varaha and the Devi Temples. The scenes from court life, romance between men and women, motifs of plants and animals and carvings of erotic rituals are common when you see the temple walls closely. There is a flight of stairs which you will have tp climb up to reach the main mandap of the temple.
