Temples of Love
Devi Jagdamba Temple
The back wall of Devi Jagdamba Temple,
facing west, has as its principal
characters the Hindu trinity, depicted in

in the lower band is that of Vamana, the
dwarf incarnation of Vishnu; the central
band has Shiva in his Mrityunjaya (one
who has conquered death) manifestation;
the upper band, Brahma with his consort

We reached Khajuraho at around 10:00 am and were welcomed into the little sleepy village, by a beautiful granite statue, dedicated to the unknown sculptor of Khajuraho. The words carrying a tone of awed mystery increased our enthusiasm of having entered the land of the erotic and exotic one-of-their-kind temple art. The initial enthusiasm was slightly chastised when out of the blue our taxi stopped in front of Hotel Zen in a not-so-picturesque area in Khajuraho.

My initial reaction was that this is not a Hotel, but a Lodge, with no view. Inside the Hotel, where we had booked rooms online, we were greeted by overgrown vegetation, a strange waterfall on a dirty homegrown lotus pond with Buddha statues, untended plants in the name of a vegetable garden, a big beehive, lots of insects, huge lizards and an over-priced tourist menu. The rooms were bare, and the linen had holes, and the service was even worse. One of the caretakers had the audacity to wear a t-shirt to work that read, “I am not paid enough to be good to you!” The message was crystal clear and so was their attitude - you had to beg for tissue-paper, make do with one single-bed blanket in a room for two, and have your meals in restaurants, other than the Hotel’s because cornflakes and milk was served at Rs 170. .more......
