The recently concluded 47th Khajuraho Dance Festival was a cultural extravaganza like none other. It was for the first time in 44 years that the festival was held on the World Heritage temple group premises. We were fortunate to witness some of the performances during the grand celebration of India's glorious folk culture and traditions. 

Here are a few glimpses.
