Day 2. Delhi - Khajuraho

Overnight – The Lalit Temple View Khajuraho

You are assisted with your check-out from your hotel in the morning and driven to the airport, where you are assisted with boarding your late-morning flight to Khajuraho. This is a one stop flight with no plane change at Varanasi. Your Tour Director and you are greeted on arrival at the Khajuraho airport and, as it is too late to head into the jungle by this time, you are driven to your hotel and assisted with your check-in. Although this hotel is not as luxurious as the other lodging on your tour, it is the only upscale option in Khajuraho and far superior to any other lodging. There is a break for a late lunch, if you so desire – airplane food will have been served on the flight.

Start your guided tour of the famed temples, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These magnificent examples of Hindu religious art were constructed about a thousand years ago.

Thousands of extremely detailed stone sculptures adorn the facades of these temples, and the subject matter includes some very explicit erotic scenes. The sophisticated design and building techniques that were used in the creation of these temples and the detailed artistry of the sculptures cannot be described in words – you have to experience them personally to grasp their impact. You have the option of attending the sound and light show at the western group of temples in the evening – it is hard to understand and not of high quality.
