Shopping in Khajuraho
Khajuraho's best known buys are small iron, brass and stone sculptures depicting Kama Sutra poses. Although available all over town, Crafts Emporium on Jain Temple Road is highly recommended. Another good place is appropriately called the 'Artist'. Run by the children of a national award winning master craftsman; look out for miniature paintings on silk, fabric, or paper inspired by temple motifs. One can also contact them for commissioned work.
Kandaryia Shilpgram is a well known crafts shop that hosts craftspeople from all over India. At these camps artisans live and create for a few months before going back home. One can watch them at work as you shop. One can also interact with them.
Tijori is an up-market option at Ramada Khajuraho on airport road. Aside from local attractions such as sculptures and silk and paper paintings, one can also find an array of antique silver and gold jewelry, diamonds from a local mine, silver boxes and vases, enameled silver elephants, sandalwood carvings, small and very large brass statues among others.
