Homage to Khajuraho (Editorial)

Title:Homage to Khajuraho (Editorial)
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj, C.P.
Enumeration:Vol. 10 Issue no. 3; June 1957, p. 2-5
Abstract:The Khajuraho temples, built by the Chandela kings during 950-1050 were a part of the manifestation of the Shiva-Shakti cult. Although they developed from the architectural and sculptural elements of the Gupta period, a shift in emphasis is visible from architecture to sculpture. This trend continued up to the 18th century in central, eastern, and southern India. The Khajuraho sculptures illustrate the fundamental aspect of the Hindu faith since vedic times: that the Universe is the outcome of the cosmic union between the male and female principle. A map of the ruins at Khajuraho follows the editorial.
