Unlike other temples Khajuraho temples are said to have a theme (women), which comes in front while going through the temples. A celebration of woman kind, her myriad moods and facets. There are carvings of a woman writing letter, applying makeup to her eyes, combing her tresses, dancing, and playing with her child.
