Khajuraho is a historic beauty, with much to offer visitors. It is a city of temples, with some of the most intrinsic works of art. These prominent works of art are erotic in nature, haunting and disconcerting at the same time. Khajuraho is also a destination shrouded in myth and legend, and with so much history, it serves as the perfect backdrop for a dance festival.
This year, the festival will also host major events, which revolve around the cultural landscape of Indian dance styles. Visitors will also be treated to an art-travel exhibition focusing on Kathak-Nepathya, art exhibits from other countries, conversations with artists and art scholars, among others. It is a unique destination for artists and art lovers.
