Konark Sun temple is an excellent historical place to witness the wonderful architectural work and the history of human kind depicted over before 800 years... It's a great Miss if one doesn't visit the place while taking a trip to sultry Odisha..

In our visit to Odisha, no location impressed and fascinated us more than this sun temple - the basic concept and the implementation has to be seen to be believed. Like most places in India and most tourist spots around the world it gets busy. I would recommend visiting in the evening or dusk and when it cools off a... More

Heritage lovers should not miss to visit the Konark Sun temple. It is a very large one dedicated to Sun god and constructed on a lavish scale. But the sanctum can no more be seen as it has collapsed. I will confine myself to giving some tips for the people who plan to visit this world famous monumental splendour. Cars,... More

When we are talking of 13th century , we need to really get back to the era and then start appreciating what we see today . First of all the very concept of building a temple in the shape of a chariot is not only unique but exquisite . The conceptualization and then execution must have taken quite a while... More
