Khajuraho.

Indian Temples and Sensuous Sculptures.
Beguin, Gilles Photographs by Iago Corazza.
2017. 240 S., 180 farb. Abb., Hardcover.
5 Continents


The temples of Khajuraho are one of the great wonders of India. Built between about 850 and 1150, Khajuraho is renowned as much for the elegance of its architecture as for the sensuality of its sculpture. Once an important political and religious center, it is thought to have contained up to 95 Hindu and Jain temples, but today, only 25 survive?many with stunning depictions of human sexuality. The area has undergone restoration since being rediscovered in the early 19th century, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, acclaimed scholar Gilles Béguin leads readers through a tour of these amazing temples, all newly photographed by Iago Corazza.
