TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Casa di William Khajuraho
OK, this wasn't the most luxurious of places we have stayed, but at £5 a night for a twin room it was good value. The main thing is that it was clean. We just wanted somewhere to stay overnight on our way to Varanasi. The beds are small and hard but the linen is clean. It took a while to get hot water for a shower, but it was fine once he problem was fixed. Our room was rather cild as it was at the back...ask for a room at the front? The owner met us off the train with a rickshaw which was really helpful. The restaurant was clean with good food - nice views from the rooftop. Right next door to western group of temples. Recommended for a budget stay.

... temples, offering everything from shawls to trips to a dry waterfall, but it is worth running the gauntlet to get to the site.
Khajuraho is a fairly isolated town and this has been both to it's benefit and its detraction. The temples and idols were isolated from all the destruction by the Muslim invaders which helped preserve the site, however, due to it's isolation, the people eventually abandoned the town and the jungle took over. ...
... and understand better their meaning. Since neither of us is educated in arts it seemed to be a good option.
Finally we needed only 3 hours to visit the following temples:
- Varaha Temple. This temple is quite simple and modest. It is an oblong pavilion with a pyramidal roof of receeding tiers, resting on 14 plain pillars. The temple enshrines a colossal monolithic image of Varaha, the boar incarnation of Vishnu. The shrine is built entirely of sandstone. It ...
... a scooter to get around on, not necessary, but fun. 500 rupees or $10.00 seemed fair for a scooter the had less than 5000 klm on it. Then we headed off to the western temple area where the majority of the significant temples are. These temples, like many Hindu temples are decorated with extremely ornate carvings, often with erotic themes. Often you can see lighter ...
