The Temple of Khajuraho

What most amazes its visitors are the erotic figures that decorate the exteriors of many of the temples. In them you can see erotic and sexual scenes between men, women and animals. It is believed that they represent the sexual life of the people at that time and are not images of gods practicing sex. It is very surprising to see this type of sexual scenes in a temple in a country as conservative as India, in which to speak with a traditional Indian woman (of the people) is almost impossible.
