Khajuraho Dance Festival: Celebrating Life Through Dance

Art and Culture

Khajuraho is one of the most popular tourist spots in Madhya Pradesh, thanks to its ancient temples adorned with intricate sculptures. The temples are not the only beautiful forms of art that can be seen at Khajuraho. The Khajuraho Dance Festival, organised by the Department of Culture of the government of Madhya Pradesh, takes place every year against the spectacular backdrop of these temples.

The Khajuraho Dance Festival began in 1975 to celebrate this art and since then has become one of the most anticipated cultural events in India. Every year dance lovers from across the world gather at Khajuraho to celebrate life through dance. Renowned dancers from all parts of the country come and showcase various Indian classical dance forms like Bharatnatyam, Kathakali, Odissi, Manipuri, Kathak and Mohiniyattam.
