The Khajuraho temple complex is a series of beautifully built and decorated buildings in Madhya Pradesh. What really sets Khajuraho apart from other temples is the numerous erotic carvings, both inside and outside the temple, that depict men, women, and even animals engaging in lovemaking, orgies, and bestiality under the benign smiles of divine beings.

Considered to be one of the most conservative countries in the world, believe it or not, India was extremely liberal and open about the concept of sex even before the 13th century. The statement is based on the sex sculptures carved on the walls of temples in India that were built in the 2nd Century. Sex was even taught as a formal subject as a part of education with pictorial representations of Kamasutra. Kama sexual desire was considered to be a part of the four human goals of life. The other three goals were: Dharma moral life , Artha material gains and means of life , and Moksha the release from the cycle of life and rebirths. Considered to be a holistic act, there were various sculptures of different positions, forms, and acts carved on the walls of various temples in India.
