Konark Travel to Famous Sun Temple in Orissa


Konark Travel, also known as Arka-Tirtha,is known for its Temple of Lord Surya,the sun god. It is situated on the sea shore, 33 km from the north of the Puri and 64 Km from Bhubaneshwar in Orissa State of India. It was constructed on black stone in the beginning of the 13 th centuary,and is considered as one of the most vivid architectural showpieces of Hindu India.

The worship of Sun God is universal to all world civilizations and the Temple at Konark is a reminder of the majesty and glory associated with it. But Konark has little else to offer apart from the Temple - some shops, stalls, a few small hotels and a tourist office. Konark is an easy one-day trip from both Puri and Bhubaneshwar. But an overnight stay can be quite rewarding, because once day visitors have departed, a strange peace cascade on the Temple.

Despite of the fact that the Black Pagoda is in ruins , the remaining Porch area and other structures of Konark Temple remain as the crown jewel of the Orissa art work.
