Archaeological Museum Travel

Khajuraho is largely acclaimed for its celebrated group of medieval temples embellished with awe-inspiring sculptures. In 1910, W.A. Jardine, an innovative local officer of the British government collected the loose sculptures and architectural members of the ruined temples of Khajuraho and preserved it in an enclosure built adjoining to the Matangeshwar Temple.

Till 1952, this collection was known as Jardine Museum and then it was taken over by the Archaeological Survey of India. Now this open-air museum is used for collection of reserves wherein the public entry is prohibited.

The present Archaeological Museum was set up in the year 1967, and it displays representative collection from the reserve museum. The Brahmanical, Jaina, and Buddhist faiths displayed in the five galleries of the new museum are conspicuous and arrest ones attention.
