History-
According to the local legends, the Khajuraho temples have an interesting story behind their name that will leave you intrigued.

The Chandela rulers, who started the construction of temples, surrounded the entire area with a wall. About eight gates were built in the wall which was mainly used for coming or going. It is said that there were palm and palm trees on both sides of each gate. The name was derived from these trees and the temples were called “Khajura-Vatika”. In the Hindi language ‘Khajura’ means ‘date palm’ and ‘Vahika’ means ‘bearing’. The date palm tree is found in abundance in this area.
lost and Found-
The Khajuraho temples were built by the Chandelas when they ruled the region. Over the centuries, these magnificent structures were neglected as a result of the decline of the Chandela Empire. Worse, they were very sensitive to threats from invaders and rulers from the 13th to the 18th century onwards who destroyed many temples.
Originally only 20 of the 85 temples here stand today. Due to their remote location and isolation, some temples were spared. These were covered by overgrowth of vegetation and forests for centuries. These were rediscovered only in the last century and were later restored and preserved.
