Kandariya Mahadeva Temple


What :

Kandariya Mahadeva is one of the 25 remaining temples in Khajuraho’s Word Heritage Site.

The largest and tallest of the temples, Kandariya Mahadeva is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The walls of the temple feature hundreds of carved statues the lives and escapades of the Chandela Rajput dynasty that used Khajuraho as the epicenter of its religious rites.

Most of the statues are over 3 feet tall, and Kandariya Mahadeva is considered to have the most carvings of the remaining temples in the area. Many of these statues feature depictions of brazenly erotic contortions and feats of sexual dexterity.

When :

The monsoon rains come through Khajuraho in July and August, which reduces the number of visitors at the World Heritage Site, and makes bookings easy to obtain.

October through March is the busiest time of the year when guests on luxury tours of India plan to avoid the summer heat.

Where :

The Kandariya Mahadeva temple is in the Western Group of temples in Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh.

Easily accessed via India's modern highways, private car service is the best mode of transport to and around Khajuraho.

Who :

Part of a large World Heritage Site, Kandariya Mahadeva and its sister temples are a frequent highlight on India tour itineraries.

The intricate carvings and soaring peaks of the temple grounds spread throughout the city are a cultural experience travelers remember vividly.

Appropriate Attire :

Visitors should cover their shoulders, arms, and legs as a sign of modesty while on holy grounds.

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
