Mesmerizing even though the chariot is getting dilapidated now

Konark or Sun Temple is a UNESCO world heritage. This is a heritage built in the shape of a chariot with wheels and horses. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu God, Surya or Sun. Most of the parts of the temple are now ruined. But the beauty of sculptures is still worth watching . The vehicles have to be parked in its parking space and hire an auto-rickshaw to the temple. At the entrance, have to take the entry ticket. There are many local shops near the gate. Be careful of the quality and also be prepared for bargaining . Tourists have to walk here in the open so the best time to visit will be from October to March when the climate will be favorable . . There are few hotels or restaurants nearby for the tourists to have food. The temple timings are 6 AM-8 PM.

Great architecture - Ruins of ancient temple

It is actually runs of a great temple built in ancient times . . Great architecture and unbelievable stone work. Very well maintained garden also available. Guides also available but beware of duplicates. It is not an active temple and no Pooja performed here.

Konark Temple

If you have been in Puri or Bhubaneshwar one should must go to see the Sun Konark Temple but it will be better to hire a guide. The Temple has been closed permanently the sculpture also damaged by the sea wind but still most of the sculpture are full. Every wheel of the Sun temple has different meaning, one can know the time from the Konark wheel.

Magnificent

You will love the story the guide will tell you on the way to Konark! It's KONARK, NOT KONAROCK! Take your time and explore every corner ... Don't buy anything! The price is 3times than Puri market, or, Bargain !! Food quality is pathetic, so don't think about having your lunch over there, although, your guide will ask you to eat from there only as they will get thair lunch for free as a reward from the dhaba ...

Konark Sun Temple

We visited Konark in sept. 2017. It is very well maintained ancient temple. Though it is called Sun temple there is no puja or God as such. The light and sound show is very nice and worth seeing. Started just 1 week before we visited. The show starts at 8 pm. So if you want to watch light and sound show go by private vehicle. Reach there in day time so that you can see the entire temple in day light. As well as at night. There is separate ticket for temple and light and sound show. Don't miss the show. Konark is only one and half drive from Puri.

One of the most beautiful historic monument of east India. Wall carvings on temple wall are similar to Khajuraho temple. Beach near to temple is breathtaking.

Ancient temple of sun

The temple was built in 1100 AD by kings dedicated to lord sun and named as sun temple. The original structure was destroyed by Portuguese and Mughals. The famous wheel of rath that was depicted on Rs. 20 note was from here only. Clean area with sitting facility for older ages.

Konark temple

Amazing place. Mesmerizing architecture. Must visit for everyone who goes to Puri.Chandrabhan beach near the temple is excellent and better than the Puri beach .. Inhabited and untouched.There are a lot of goodies and momentos that one can purchase outside the temple. Only 25 rs for the entry ticket.Also, there are a lot of guides there .. You may or may not take one. I personally did not prefer that.
