Travel Tips for Khajuraho
Get a good guide
There's only so much you can figure out on your own. I've made the mistake many times of trying to puzzle it out with a guide book since there are so many scammers whose only knowledge IS from those books.
But if you ask questions and they sound informed and intelligent, bargain for your best price - it's a small price to pay for going all that way and not missing the point... My guide came up to me in the primary temples and offered to show me around the western group. I must have showed my skepticism because he gave me a half hour 'freebie' tour that really did open my eyes, including this image of royal lovers and their attendants.
Apart from all the fascinating sculptures that can be studied at Khajuraho, the temples themselves are quite beautiful when viewed as a whole, their golden stones contrasting brilliantly against the luminescent blue of the Indian sky...

The Local Village
My young friend had offered to show me through his village which lay behind the shops. While we walked I asked questions. He was a student and in his holiday and leisure time he tried to take tourists to various stores and admitted that he was given a commission to do this. I found his honesty refreshing and while I was willing, I had no problem in him doing this.
