architectural splendor of the medieval times
and an outstanding religious structure of
the world, the Sun temple or Konark temple
dates back to the thirteenth century during
the rule of King Narasimhadeva. The entire
temple is designed in the shape of a giant
chariot carrying sun god across the heavens.
A stunning instance of Orissan temple architecture,
Konark’s Sun temple has been aptly
described by the famous Bengali poet Rabindranath
Tagore as 'here the language of stone surpasses
the language of man', which means Konark
is impossible to translate into words.
