Khajuraho Shilpalu showing the kama continued collection

By the time the last temple was completed the Chandela dynasty had
sunk into oblivion. Khajuraho was the Chandela capital for only a
brief
period; they ruled for the most part from Kalinjar and other parts of
the Bundelkhand region, with Khajuraho remaining their religious
center. The most important aspect of the temples is the abundance of
sculptures that decorate the facades and interiors of the shrines. In
this profusion of images attention has understandably been paid to
divinities, less Understandably to celestial beauties and the female
form in general and, controversially, to graphic sexual
representations.
