Overview

Take a private full-day tour of Khajuraho that features sightseeing at many temples followed by time for shopping. Spend the morning visiting several of the fine temples that are part of the Khajuraho Group of Monuments — a UNESCO World Heritage site. In the afternoon, explore the city's shops and handicrafts, and have the option to stay for the evening sound and light show at the Western Group of Temples.
  • Private full-day tour of Khajuraho Temples and handicrafts
  • Enjoy a more personalized experience with a private guide
  • Have the option to watch an evening show at the western temples about the Chandela royals
  • Includes temple entrance fees, buffet lunch, private guide, and transportation
Your private guide meets you at your Khajuraho hotel at 9am and transfers you to the western group of the Khajuraho Temples.

Begin at Kandariya Mahadev temple, a massive structure with more than 870 statues and carvings. Continue to the Chaunset Yogini temple, the Chitragupta temple, and Viswanath Temple — the largest example of the temples in this area.

The World Heritage-listed Khajuraho temples were built between the 9th and 12th centuries, and are known for their depictions of eroticism along with other themes.

After a morning of temple hopping, take a break for a buffet lunch at a popular restaurant. Then browse the selection of handicrafts made by local households in this small town, where houses have been converted into budget hotels, shops, and restaurants.

In the early evening, have the option to see a sound and light show (at additional expense) at the temple complex. The 50-minute show is presented in both Hindi and English, and it highlights the story of the Chandela dynasty that built the temples around Khajuraho. 

When your tour ends around 7:30 pm, your guide returns you to your Khajuraho hotel, or to the airport or train station.

Meet your personal guide at your hotel in Khajuraho at 9am and begin your day with a transfer to the UNESCO World Heritage site known as the "Western Group of Temples.” Start your visit with the Kandariya Mahadev temple, the most popular and beautiful massive structure. It is a magnificent piece of artistic sculptural work decorated with over 870 statues and carvings. Stroll through other temples such as the Chaunset Yogini, dedicated to the Goddess Kali; the Chitragupta or Bharatji, featuring a lovely image of the 11 headed Vishnu; Vishwanath, Nandi, Lakshmana and Visha, dedicated to Shiva, which is the largest and most typical of the temples in this area. Although the Khajuraho temples are more popularly known for their depictions of eroticism, the images are also perfectly balanced with other themes. In the early afternoon, savor a buffet lunch in one of the city's best restaurants. Afterward set out to explore the local handicrafts of the town. In this small town, tourism accounts for the main source of earnings for its local people. Notice how nearly every household is engaged in some kind of commercial activity. Houses are converted into budget hotels, shops and restaurants. Finally, in the early evening, you can enjoy an optional sound and light show (not included in tour price) at the Western Group of Temples complex which provides a brief overview of the life and times of the great Chandela Kings and highlights the story of the exclusive temples from the 10th Century to the present day. The fascinating 50-minute show is presented in both Hindi and English languages. At the end of the tour, you will be transported to your hotel, airport or railway station in Khajuraho around 6pm.
