Khajuraho Temples are one of the best temples among the most beautiful medieval monuments in the country. These temples were built by the Chandella ruler. It was the golden period of Chandella rulers. It is presumed that it was every Chandella ruler has built at least one temple in his lifetime. So all Temples are not constructed by any single Chandella ruler but Temple building was a tradition of Chandella rulers and followed by almost all rulers of Chandella dynasty.

After fall of Chandella dynasty, Khajuraho Temples suffered destruction & disfigurement by muslim invaders in this area which forced local people to leave Khajuraho. As Muslim invaders had a ruling policy of intolerance for worship places of other religions so all the citizens left the town with a hope that its solitude will not attract attention of Muslim invaders into the temple area and in this way both temple and they themselves will remain unhurt. So from about 13th century to 18th century, Khajuraho temples remain in forest cover, away from popularity till it was re-discovered by British engineer T. S. Burt.
