Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 12

Chaaya Devi ka mandir is a temple dedicated to the wife of the Sun God, built behind the main temple.
According to Hindu mythology, the Sun God (Aditya) was without a wife or a sister for thousands of years and he revolved around the earth once everyday searching for one. This frustrated him and made him hot tempered. Brahma realized the frustration and created Gayatri (his sister) and Samgnya (his wife). However Aditya’s hot temper terrified Samgnya and on the advice of her sister in law she left her Chhaya (shadow) to function as Aditya's wife and went back to her parent's home. After finding out, the Sun God allowed Tvastr to put him on his cutting lathe and shear away the excess brilliance. This reunited the Sun God with his wife Samgnya (Chhaya Devi). #unescoworldheritage

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 11

One popular tale told by locals about the temple is that it is surrounded by an aura of great power that is emitted from a pair of magnets believed to have been built into the tower. The magnets are rumored to have allowed the king’s throne to levitate and to have frequently caused shipwrecks to happen along the coast.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 10

Narasimhadeva I, a ruler of the East Ganga dynasty,  decided to build this temple in order to commemorate his military victories against Muslim invaders. As Narasimhadeva was a devotee of Surya, he decided to have the temple built in the form of the god’s chariot.
On the north and south sides of the temple, there are a total of 24 carved wheels, each of which measures around 3 meters (9.84 ft.) in diameter. Each of these wheels has a set of eight spokes, which serve as sundials.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 9

The entire temple is made in the form of a huge chariot of Sun God with 12 pairs of wheels (as you can see from this left side angle of the temple), represent the hours of the day, or possibly the months of a year. This solar chariot is drawn by seven horses, which are said to symbolize the days of the week.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 6

The stone temple was made from three types of stone.Chlorite was used for the door lintel and frames as well as some sculptures. Laterite was used for the core of the platform and staircases near the foundation. Khondalite was used for other parts of the temple. Khondalite stone weathers faster over time, and this may have contributed to erosion and accelerated the damage when parts of the temples were destroyed.None of these stones occur naturally nearby, and the architects and artisans must have procured and moved the stones from distant sources, probably using the rivers and water channels near the site.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 5

Tried the @followmeto style for this pic, inspired by @muradosmann ☺☺☺
The huge wheels of the Konark Temple are one of the major attractions for visitors. They have been interpreted as the 'Wheel of Life' that portray the cycle of creation, preservation and achievement of realisation.
The size and architecture of the 24 wheels is same but each one of them has been differently carved all over. They were used as Sun dials in ancient times to know the time of the day. 2 of the wheels show the time accurately from sun rise to sun set by the shadow of a finger placed on the spoke.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 4

The temple was referred to as the 'Black Pagoda' due to its dark colour and its magnetic power that drew ships into the shore and caused shipwrecks, during olden times when it was nearer to the sea. The golden glow of the sunset imparts some softness to the rough stones of the temple as seen here.

Konark Sun Temple Series - Part 3
My OCD is having a hard time with the lack of symmetry in capturing this photo 😃😄 Sorry!

Constructed in the 13th century, the Konark Sun Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. Fully carved from stone, much of the temple is in ruins, but you can still see the intricate artwork, iconography, and themes.

A stone wheel engraved in the walls of the temple. The temple is designed as a chariot consisting of 24 such wheels, with a diameter of 9 feet, 9 inches, with 8 spokes. This symbolizes the Hindu iconography of Surya, the Sun God, who is represented as rising in the east and traveling across the sky in a chariot drawn by 7 horses.
