Lakshmana Temple



 

What :

Lakshmana is the oldest and most intricately decorated of the many Hindu temples in the city of Khajuraho, India. Each of the 22 temple structures in the city is dedicated to a different deity, and is all that remain of a sprawling temple city that once contained 85 separate structures.

Completed around 950 A.D., the massive structure features depictions of the Hindu god Vishnu, soldiers, and images of daily life from that era carved with great detail directly into the facade and pillars of temple, but it’s the strikingly erotic sculpted images found mostly on the southern face of the temple that draws travelers on tours of India to this ancient World Heritage Site.

Featuring a host of erotic poses and sexual acts, there are hundreds of these complexly carved figures covering Lakshmana, and the 21 other remaining temples located in Khajuraho that draw visitors on luxury tours of India.


When :

To beat the heat, the best times to visit Lakshmana are between October and March.

Alternatively, visiting during July and August monsoons can help guests on tours in India beat the crowds, and save on accommodations.

The temples are closed on the weekend, so plan accordingly.


Where :

Located in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, Khajuraho’s temples are split into three distinct groups based on the cardinal directions East, West, and South. Lakshmana is in the western block of temples from the center of town.

Though small, Khajuraho is well connected to major Indian cities thanks to its central location. Travel to and from the city via private car is easy.


Who :

Lakshmana and the other remaining structures offer interesting architectural and historic sustenance for the scholar and neophyte alike. The intricate detail of carved panels framing the temples are astounding, and the explicit depictions on some of the panels offer a thoughtful juxtaposition on a conservative culture that created the world’s most famous sex manual, The Kama Sutra.


Appropriate Attire :

Lakshmana is a holy temple dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, and guests should dress modestly by covering their shoulders, arms, and legs while on temple 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
