My American friend said, "Khajuraho should be one of the seven wonders of the world instead of Taj Mahal." Need I say more? I will still try. Khajuraho is 5,000 years of Hindu mythology immortalized in stone. The walls and ceilings of the temples depict countless legends, myths and stories of Hinduism. Don't make the mistake of visiting the temple complexes without a guide.
There are a whole host of places to visit around Khajuraho. Go in search of the royal Bengal tiger in Panna National Park; spot gharials (fish-eating crocodiles) in Ken Gharial Sanctuary; be awed by the multicoloured canyons at Raneh Falls and click Insta-worthy photos of the Pandav Falls.
Best time to visit Khajuraho
Best time to visit Khajuraho is after monsoon from September to March when the temperature ranges from 10 to 30 Celsius. However, if you want to avoid crowds, see some pristine greenery and don't mind a fair drizzle then the monsoon months of July and August are also good.
