Erotic Temples at Khajuraho

Spent the morning visiting the amazing Temple complex here at Khajuraho. Lots of them built around a thousand years ago, the guide said there were about 85 built in all, though many have fallen into misuse and disrepair since. Many of the temples are famous for their erotic carvings, inspiration for the Karma Sutra, which was to be written centuries later.
At times I had to shield Barbara's eyes from some of the more explicit work, scroll to the bottom of the linked page to find out what I mean.
