Khajuraho "the Temples of Love": The erotic sculptures

Khajuraho temples are famous for their erotic arts. These constitute about 10% of total art displayed at the monuments. The Khajuraho temples feature a variety of art work, some of which is sexual or erotic art outside and inside the temples. Some of the temples that have two layers of walls have small erotic carvings on the outside of the inner wall. Some scholars suggest these to be tantric sexual practices.
Other scholars state that the erotic arts are part of Hindu tradition of treating kama as an essential and proper part of human life, and its symbolic or explicit display is common in Hindu temples. James McConnachie, in his history of the Kamasutra, describes the sexual-themed Khajuraho sculptures as "the apogee of erotic art".

The temples of Khajuraho are richly decorated with art carved sculptures. Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for their erotic sculptures, sexual themes are covering less than 10% of the temples sculpture. In addition, most "Kamasutra" images are in balance with the non- sexual scene panels. The arts cover numerous features of human life and values considered important in Hindu pantheon.
