dc.descriptionThe Khandaria is the greatest of the Khajuraho temples. It is 100' long and 100' in height. It was originally a temple, like the Lakshmana, with four subsidiary sanctuaries. The temple platform is not rectangular but follows the outline of the building. Between its balconies the walls are decorated with three rows of figures in erotic scenes. The scenes with several participants are master-pieces of composition. The Khandaria dates from the beginning of the 11th century and was probably erected by the king Vidyadhara.
