ANCIENT CARVINGS IN INDIA
When you visit India there are a few places one has to visit. Khajuraho is famous for its erotic carvings. We decided to pass Khajuraho before going to Varanasi. They are not far from each other and this opportunity doesn’t come again. The roads to Khajuraho are bad, to say the least. After a week on the road with the Royal Enfield it seemed this last part was worse than most.
The city isn’t really big. We took hotel Harmony. The hotel is run by a swami from OSHO. The story is is that OSHO used to visit here in the early days. The hotel has a great atmosphere, a beautiful patio and nice rooms. it is surrounded by a huge wall to keep the view of dirt and the smell out.
When you want to enter the temple complex you have to pay a fee. Inside it looks like a park with grass fields and beautiful plants and trees. The temples are beautiful. The carvings on the outside and inside are unbelievable. It takes some time to find the famous erotic images but they are there. I loved to walk along these old temples and made a lot of pictures.
