The Khajuraho Sex Temples are a group of Hindu and Jain temples in India. The temples have several thousand statues and art works. While the temples are famous for their sex sculpture, the sex art cover less than 10% of the temple sculpture.  The art contain sexual themes and various sexual poses. The art work symbolically highlight the four goals of life considered necessary and proper in Hinduism - dharma, kama, artha and moksha.

Some scholars suggest these to be tantric sexual practices. Other scholars state that the sexual arts are part of Hindu tradition of treating kama as an essential and proper part of human life, and its symbolic or explicit display is common in Hindu temples.

Since sexual union is the affirmation of the ideal relationship between human and divine, physical enjoyment is the concrete form of the spiritual enjoyment. Sringara (sexual enjoyment) is the aesthetic experience of the basic emotion of love. The ineffable ecstacy of the union of man and woman finds expression in terms of sexual experience. The mithuna sculpture on the temples is an expression of this ideal.

While "The Sex Temples of Khajuraho" are famous for their erotic sculpture,
over 90% of the art work at the temples is about daily life
and symbolic values in ancient Indian culture.

The body is the physical manifestation of the inner life. Mithuna sculpture on temples is, therefore, an outer manifestation of man's inward aesthetic pleasure. There are sixty four arts of love-making as enunciated by Vatsayana in Kama Sutra. These arts are essential for fulfilling three aims of life, viz., Kama, Artha and Dharma.

The art of love and sex is an important branch of human knowledge. Sexual enjoyment constitutes fulfillment of Dharma. Human love is analogous to spiritual passion. The sexual embrace of man and woman gives the same pleasure what mystical experience of the soul gives in the embrace of God.

Mithuna sculpture, an expression in stone of the love play is therefore not profane but a glory of human achievement.
