Khajuraho was a horrible experience. I paid a "fair price" for a taxi from the station to avoid any scams or touts, but my driver still stopped and picked up a tout who wanted to rebook my hotel. When I threatened to withhold payment the...More

Great place, not badly priced. But once you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all. Place very clean and would recommend wearing socks as you have to remove shoes when entering towers and the floor becomes hot. Down side is to the venders out side haggling...More

We reach there @ 6:30am to avoid heat & rush. Take water with you. It took 3 hours to visit whole western group of temples. Wear comfortable shoes or sleepers. Take guide compulsorily, otherwise you will not know abt things.
