The temples are grouped into three geographical divisions: western, eastern and southern. In my picture, it is the western group. The Khajuraho temples are made of sandstone. The builders didn't use mortar : the stones were put together with mortise and tenon joints and they were held in place by gravity. This form of construction requires very precise joints. The columns and architraves were built with megaliths that weighed up to 20 tons.

The temples park is shown beautifuly, Miguel, and must say you had managed well inspite of harsh light conditions. The place is overwhelming in fine art architecture's typical India.

Good fg color, contrast & saturation with superb sharpness throughout. Due to air pollution, the bg is a little washed out & hazy, so I would rope it off, apply a large feather of say 100 pixels, & slide levels until it looks right. Or reduce brightness / increase saturation & contrast, or both. Bon semaine!

Those temples are really pretty and a different kind of architecture compared with Occident architecture. Love the colors here and the point of view.
