The most awesome and the largest temple in Khajuraho, Kandariya Mahadev Temple is built in around 1025–1050 AD. A typical sandstone structure, the temple is dedicated to Shiva with a linga at the center of the Garbha Griha. The elaborately engraved main shrine is bejeweled with more than 800 images, of which most of them are three feet high. The temple architecture consists of ardhamandapa, a mahamandapa supported with pillars, the garba griha and the pradakshina.

The tower of the temple is about 100 ft high. The platform of the temple, which is decorated with sculptures of beautiful women in a variety of postures is really stunning. The southern and northern portions of this shrine depict the most erotic sculptures. The most elegant and famous temple also houses some of the fantastically ornate frescos on its wall, which speaks out the artistic grandeur of the bygone days.
