Konark is a place near Puri, Bhuvaneshwar in Odisha. This place is a great attraction for the tourist for its historical Sun Temple.

This temple is dedicated to God Sun, being the ultimate source of it is in ruined state, even it is a splendid  temple showing  the advancement of the architects.

Bhubaneshwar, Konark and Puri constitute the Golden triangle of Orissa, which attracts a  large numbers of pilgrims and tourists. This temple is situated at the bank of river Chandrabhaga, which merges in sea at Chandrabhaga Beach.

The intricate sculpture inscribed on the stone wall of the temple are fascinating.  Different poses of rati-kriya has also been sculptured, which resemble the architect of Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh. It is presumed that after Kalinga War, the population of the region reduced drastically and people get distracted from their family life. To provoke the attraction between men and women, such mating scene were created on the wall of the temple. This temple is one of the most historical and splendid sculptural site of India.
