History of  Khajuraho

Khajuraho was the cultural capital of Chandel Rajputs, a Hindu dynasty that ruled Khajuraho from the 10 to 12th centuries. Chandel Kings never lived in their cultural capital because of this Khajuraho has no forts. Chandela Kings claimed descent from the Chandra, the moon god. Hemvati, the beautiful daughter of a Brahmin priest of Varanasi was seduced by the Moon God while she was bathing according to a legend. The child born of this union was a son, Chandravarman. The unwed mother took refuge in the forest as condemned by society. The boy grew up to found the Chandela dynasty. He dreamt that his mother wanted him to build temples to reveal human passions. Chandravarman began the foundation of the temples and successive rulers added to the complex. After the decline of Chandela dynasty's decline in the 13th century, the temples were concealed by dense jungles. In 1838 a British army engineer, Captain T.S. Burt rediscovered Khajuraho. Khajuraho was opened to tourists only a few decades ago.
