13th December 2005 : Afternoon
I reached the southern group around 1:30 pm and visited the Duldeo temple first and then Chaturbhuja.
After seeing Chaturbhuja at 3:30pm I could not find my car keys. And was locked out! I had to borrow a bicycle from a villager, and ride it shakily back to my hotel to get a dupicate set of kcar keys! Later found the orginal set of keys also inside the car. So by the time I left Chaturbhuj it was 4:00pm.
Went to Cybercafe in the market and burnt a CD of all my pictures for a backup.
Went back to my hotel by 5:30pm and planned tomorrows departure to Orchaa.

Khajuraho is a World Heritage Site. It was once the capital of Chandela kingdom. The Chandelas built these temples in a creative century between 950 to 1050 AD, in a remote location; which perhaps helped it survive the Muslim onslaught. This page covers the temples and sculptures of the Southern Group of Temples.
