Only 22 of these temples remain today, to bear testimony to the craftsmanship of Chandella builders. Every year in March, these splendid temples come alive during the week-long festivals of classical dances.

A Fusion of the body and the sprit, as dusk falls over the ancient Chandela Shrines at Khajuraho the stillness is suddenly pierced by the sound of Ghungroos and the staccato beat of the tabla. Once again the Khajuraho festival of dance begins amidst the famous temples to create for the audience, the most spectacular and exhilarating cultural experience of the year.
