Archaeological Museum



 

What :

Visitors to the Archaeological Museum in Khajuraho are greeted by a 1,000 year-old statue of the elephant-headed god, Ganesh.

The museum houses hundreds of loose sculptures and friezes gathered from the temple grounds spread throughout the city. With multiple galleries brimming with ancient carvings and sculptures, the museum offers educational context for travelers on tours of India to further illuminate the many temples of Khajuraho.


When :

The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Thursday, and entrance is free with the same ticket used to access the Western Group of Khajuraho's many temples.

July and August bring heavy rains to the area, and free up booking and reduce crowds in the city. Travelers avoiding summer heat find the best times to visit between October and March on their luxury tours of India.


Where :

The Archaeological Museum is located in the Western Temple Group grounds in the city of Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh.

The city is easily accessed and navigated using India's modern highways, and private car service can easily deliver guests on India tours to the temple grounds.


Who :

The museum offers plenty of information about the decorations and art the Khajuraho temples are so famous for, and many of the items inside are unique to the area. History and art lovers use the additional perspective they gain from the museum to better understand the 25 temples of Khajuraho.


Appropriate Attire :

The museum is on sacred ground, and visitors coming to the area should cover their shoulders, arms, and legs in religious propriety.

John and I will always remember our trip. Before we went I had not the least bit of understanding about India. Now I feel that I have a foundation that will allow me to continue to learn and think about this complex and important place. We are grateful for the care and attention that went into the arrangements at each stop along the way. The kindness and patience of your employees and the local guides and drivers as we explored and asked innumerable questions was much appreciated. We were impressed with the knowledge and insight of our guides, especially the guides in Agra, in Udaipur and in Orcha. They were superb. Our driver in Khajuraho and Orcha was extremely thoughtful and reassuring. I am certain that you are aware that our driver through Rajasthan is a treasure. He is extraordinarily skillful and very fine company. Our travel facilitators were very helpful, especially in Agra and in Delhi. Our hotels were comfortable.
We are glad that we found Easy Tours and are grateful for your guidance in planning our itinerary as well as for making the arrangements that made this memorable experience possible. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.  INDEPENDENT TRAVEL

My entire family truly enjoyed our trip to India and Easy Tour definitely made it amazing. We really appreciated the fact that everything was on time and very efficiently organized. We enjoyed all the sites! We definitely would recommend Easy Tour to anyone looking to travel on a private tour in India and if we travel there again, we will use Easy Tour again. Oh and we must have had the best driver in India for the portion of Delhi to Udaipor. He was just amazing! All our guides were excellent except for the one in Jodhpur. All the other guides always very enthusiastic. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.  INDEPENDENT TRAVEL
