We take you to extension tour of Khajuraho & Varanasi, which is worth visiting. The famous sculptures in the sandstone temples of Khajuraho are truly beautiful, executed with a joy, fluidity and lack of inhibition that is rarely to be found in modern India. Their eroticism shocked the British ("The sculptor had at times allowed his subject to grow a little warmer than there was any absolute necessity for doing," wrote one officer primly in 1838), but they are widely acknowledged as some of the most exquisite temple art in India.
Varanasi is probably the place in India that has the most profound impact on visitors. Formerly known as Benares, it sits on a bend of the Ganges, and its spiritual significance comes from its status as a "crossing place", where gods and goddesses can descend to earth. It has been a pilgrimage site since the sixth century BC. Hindus try to visit at least once in their lifetime and immediately make for the river to pray and bathe.
