    The dancers perform dances from the various Indian states in a very colourful display. Everyone is tightly packed in to this indoor theatre and are entertained also by two musicians and a young girl who sings while the dances are being performed.

    The Kandariya Art & Cultural Centre is both a handcraft and gift store and an entertainment venue which offers a cultural program very similar to the one held at the Shilpgram. Their Kathak dance show starts at 6.30pm and is held every evening.

    Sounds and Light Show

    by keeweechic Written Jan 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is quite something unique and tries to recreate the beginning of the temples and the life of the Chandela Kings. It is held in the grounds of the Western Group of temples every evening except during the Monsoon season. Large speakers boom out the sound effects and narration of the story of Khajuraho and what was likely happening during those times. The show lasts for 50 mins in the dark of the evening with the lighting effects flashing in and out from the various temples to create a special kind of ambiance. Don’t wait until the end expecting a full on lighting effect as a finale. It just doesn’t happen and it all ends pretty suddenly, so despite the lack of light, take your photos during the performance. Also be prepared and take insect repellent. This is the Mosquito dinner hour. A good torch if travelling on your own will also help find your way to the seating area. There is a Hindu and English session every night.
