I spent the day visiting the Khajuraho temple complex. These Hindu and Jain temples are quite remarkable, and feature some rather naughty sculptures of people and animals in all sorts of erotic poses!
Khajuraho Temple Complex in India
After a good breakfast, I went to see the western group of temples, which I have to say were pretty impressive.
Just why they were all built in this one, out of the way place is a mystery. My answer to it is that it was a builders display for people from other towns to come and choose the temple they wanted to build in their home towns!
A lot of them had erotic sculptures lining the walls. Again, a group of random Indians asked to take my photo, and I got an equally bemused tourist to take a photo of them with me as well. I spent the evening playing chess with a couple of locals and drinking chai.
I spent the next couple of days chilling out, and taking various trains to get to Amritsar, which you can read in the next section.
