Khajuraho Temples, a World Heritage Site

the temples at Khajuraho with their intricate carvings from the Kama Sutra, are a famous celebration of love.

The Khajuraho Group of Monuments date from around 1000 AD, when the Chandella Dynasty ruled this area. Originally there were 85 temples, of which only 22 still exist. There are both Brahman and Jain temples at the site.

The temples, a World Heritage Site are beautifully decorated on the outside: bands of sculptures surround the walls. These depict life in the time of the Chandellas.

This ancient event, also known as Tuen Ng Festival, commemorates the death of a popular Chinese national hero, Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in the Mi Lo River over 2,000 years ago to protest against the corrupt rulers. Legend has it that as townspeople attempted to rescue Qu Yuan, they beat drums to scare fish away and threw dumplings into the sea to keep the fish from eating his body. Today, festival activities recall this legendary event. The real highlight of the festival is the fierce-looking dragon boats racing in a lively, vibrant spectacle. Teams race the elaborately decorated dragon boats to the beat of heavy drums. The special boats, which measure more than 10 metres, have ornately carved and painted "dragon" heads and tails, and each carries a crew of 20-22 paddlers. less

The Hotel was built on a hilltop on the plan of the ancient masseries, the old apulian farmhouses as a comfortable 4 star resort, a few steps from one of the most pristine seas in Italy. Like the old farmhouses it has its own orchard where seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown for its kitchen. Their family restaurant on the beach right below the hotel is a hot spot and serves the freshest local sea food. From San Gregorio one can hire a boat to ride along the coastline which is dotted with Paleolithic caves and endless coves for bathing. The trip continues to Leuca and its lighthouse. This is the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Ionian sea and the Adriatic sea meet. If one is in the mood for culture the city Lecce is very close by. This is a jewel of a baroque city with dramatic architecture and a lively scene. Highly recommended. 73053 Loc.
