The house of the Hindu sun god Surya is sculpted with intricate details. From its base to the roof, you will find markings smaller than a thumb to huge structures all of which seem to have interesting stories to tell. Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore once said that “here the language of stone surpasses the language of man.”
What looked like a very ancient temple is actually just under 800 years old. Konark Sun Temple is a UN World Heritage Site located in Puri District, Odisha state, India. It is one classic example of Kalinga architecture.
