  • Khajuraho Folk Dancers

    Khajuraho Local Customs

    While in Khajuraho, we were treated to a program presented by a group of young folk dancers. Their program told the story of Vishnu through their dancing and music.It was quite enjoyable and they really worked hard during the performance. I'm not sure if this was a special program for our tour or if it is available for anyone to see.
