These sculptures may be titillating or possibly may get your jaw dropped. The wall gallery display some couple in their love making posture. They are not bother to hide their asset or any kind of feeling, even they celebrating the male-female bonding in public. These erotic expression are so loud and shocking, its really hard to imagine that any temples can have such images. I think such image of sexuality can be found only in ancient temple of India.

Similar sculptures can also be seen on Lingaraja temple and another famous  world heritage site of Konark Sun temple in Odisha.
