Konark – Sun Temple – is a 13th century architectural marvel. The third link in the Orissan Golden Triangle, Konrak is the site of one of the most spectacular examples of religious architiecture in the world. The glorious ruins of the Konarak Temple, dedicated to God Surya, has become so renown even internationally, that it is now protected under UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Project. The Sun Temple conceived as a massive chariot hauling the Sun God across the heavens by the mighty of seven splendidly carved horses, standing aloft on 24 chariot wheels-intricately carved-symbolizing the march of tiem, lies in partial ruis on Konarak Beach. Rightly listed as a World Heritage Monument, the magnificent Sun Temple at Konark is the culmination of Orissan temple architecture, and one of the most stunning monuments of the world. Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore said, 'here the language of stone surpasses the language of man'. It is true that the experience of Konark is impossible to translate into words. The massive structure in solitary splendor surrounded by drifting sand is located three kilometers from the sea, but originally it was reported to be closer for which it was used as a navigational point by European sailors, who referred to it as the 'Black Pagoda'.
