Mandi asked me if there was anywhere in India I really wanted to go. When I joined the trip, the itinerary was already planned, but there was still room for some changes. “Um… yes”, I said. “I want to go to that place with all the erotic carvings on the temples.” Because, is there any cooler historical site than 1,000-year-old naughty carvings?
Getting to Khajuraho
Khajuraho is kind of out of the way. It’s not really near anything else in India and not on any of the normal tourist paths. Once you get there though, you’re rewarded for going out of your way. Khajuraho is small. It’s not crowded. It’s relaxed, and there aren’t many tourists to fight for viewing space with.
We flew on a short flight from Agra on Air India, and left on an overnight train to Varanasi 2 days later. Our travel agent warned us that there was only 1 flight a day and it was very unreliable.
