Khajuraho is an important tourist destination in India. It attracts large number of foreign visitors along with Indian visitors all through the year. However, this year it has witnessed a downfall in the international visitors with a steep rise in Indian visitors. as per the 2015, the number of Indian visitors was 2.79 lakh which was just 1.64 lakh during 2006. In case of foreign visitors, the figures in 2015 remained 65,000 that were 73,000 in 2006. This states that foreign visitors are less interested in visiting this tourist spot in Madhya Pradesh. Thus, this world heritage temple city is experiencing a slight decline in foreign visitors.
Experts say that the reason for decline may be the harassment that these visitors face and lack of decent air connectivity to the place. For improving the footfall and behavior with foreign visitors, government has laid strict guidelines to the local guides. New domestic airport was also inaugurated this January to provide best air connectivity. The city has best and star hotels that provide best cuisines and stay for foreign visitors. The hotel owners say that Indian visitors do not cost them profit, as they carry their food and do not stay for night.
