The annual Khajuraho Dance Festival, which usually takes place during the first week of February, has changed its dates this year -- causing quite a bit of confusion for visitors.

This year, it will be held from February 20-26, with traditional dance events each evening from 7 p.m.  at the Khajuraho erotic temples, one of India's most popular historical destinations.

The festival is one of India's oldest and most well known cultural events -- it's been running since 1975. The dances are performed in the Western group of temples, mainly at the Chitragupta Temple (dedicated to Surya the Sun God) and the Vishwanatha Temple (dedicated to Lord Shiva).

What's really appealing about the festival this year is that entry is free for all! The full program events will be listed on the Khajuraho Dance Festival website when it's released.

Besides dance, there will be traditional arts and crafts by local villagers on display.
