INDIA - Sun Temple, Konârak

"On the shores of the Bay of Bengal, bathed in the rays of the rising sun, the temple at Konarak is a monumental representation of the sun god Surya's chariot; its 24 wheels are decorated with symbolic designs and it is led by a team of six horses. Built in the 13th century, it is one of India's most famous Brahman sanctuaries." -

A great postcard from Amiya.
He shares... "The Sun Temple is a beautiful monument and is especially famous
for a "sundial" which you can use to tell the time,
judging by the sun's shadow falling on it!"
Amazing, isn't it? Thank you so much, Amiya...
