Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India, is a small town located in Madhya Pradesh in India, famous around the world for its breathtaking Hindu and Jain temples, which have earned UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Despite the temples being intricately covered by carvings and statues depicting a wide range of gods and scenes from the great Hindi epics, the temples are a bit unfairly or infamously known as "the Kama Sutra Temples" or "the Sex Temples," since a few of these carvings famously depict explicit sexual acts from that book. These scenes are not controversial for the sake of it, but are rather an expression of religious art with a very unique aesthetic concept. From the original eighty-five temples built around the tenth century, only a quarter survive today.

The town is very small, and apart from the temples there is nothing else to see really. Despite the fact that the main activity in the town is tourism, there are very few restaurants and cafés; the safest and best belong to hotels and hostels in Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India. Due to this shortage of lodging options, the traveler looking for a hostel in Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India, should plan with anticipation. In contrast, there is a very large amount of touts, which are even more insistent than in the rest of the country. The weather can be unforgiving during the summer months, and thus the best time to visit is from September to March.

The visitor looking to go to a hostel in Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India, should be aware that very few -- maybe only a couple -- of the listings are hostels in the traditional sense. As in the rest of the country, the definition for what a hostel in Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India is can be a little relaxed, and thus a big room with a few beds, a small shared one, or even a single bed in an unexpected place of a building can be listed as a Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India hostel. Hence, special attention to travelers' comments and reviews is advised. As the town is so small, the traveler looking for a Khajurāho, Madhya Pradesh, India hostel should know that the main options are staying near the western group of temples or closer to the airport, although everything will always be an inexpensive tuk tuk ride away, so location isn't much of a concern.
