Konark, the historic ancient and a wonderful monument, a must visit place in your life before your death.  It is mesmarizing and an extra ordinary monument.  One of the prides of India, and a historical and ancient monument recognized by the UNESCO.


Built in 13th century by King Narasimhadeva, the temple is designed in the shape of a colossal chariot with seven horses and twelve wheels, carrying the sun god, Surya, across heavens.The temple being an important landmark in the coastal voyage of European sailors was named'The Black Pagoda' .Located at a manageable distance from the seat of Lord Jagannath, Puri at 35 kms; the temple is around 65 kms from the capital city of Bhubaneswar. The name of Konark temple is an amalgamation of two words-Kona meaning corner and Arka meaning the Sun.  So, dont miss to tour this wonderful place in your life time.
