The Khajuraho temples were built over long a period more then two hundred years. The temples date back to 9th century AD to 11th century AD Khajuraho was the capital of Chandelas Hindu rulers of Rajput descent. Consequently the temples suffered from pillage and plunder by Mogul invaders. Of eighty temples about twenty now remain in good condition.
