Khajuraho temple carving by rsnamli Star this if you like it!

Whatever the reason behind the existence of the temples, for many centuries after the decline of the Chandelas in the 13th century, they lay forgotten. The dense jungles around advanced and hid them from the world. Many were destroyed, others fell victim to wind, weather and neglect. Khajuraho was rediscovered only a few decades ago and opened to tourists. Basic tourist infrastructure and an airstrip contributed to making the temples accessible to the world. The temples underwent a painstaking process of cleaning and restoration to bring them back to their original glory. Today, the wonder that is Khajuraho is India's gift to the world.
