The village of Khajuraho is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. It s numerous Hindu and Jain temples are famous for their erotic sculpture. The temples were built over a span of 200 years from 950 to 1150. During the Chandella rule Khajuraho was home to a large and flourishing Jain community. The Jains apparently lived on the east side of town and a number of Jain temples have survived in this part of Khajuraho. Two of the large temples still stand in a good state of preservation
