There were 85 temples, which were built, and only 22 of them survive today. Unlike other temples Khajuraho temples are said to have a theme (women), which comes in front while going through the temples. A celebration of woman kind, her myriad moods and facets. There are carvings of a woman writing letter, applying makeup to her eyes, combing her tresses, dancing, and playing with her child. Innocent, coquettish, smiling, seductive, passionate and beautiful, all depicted in intricate detail, sharply etched, sculpted with consummate skill.
