Zodiac

Twelve spokes, one wheel, navels three.
Who can comprehend this?
On it are placed together
Three hundred and sixty like pegs.
They shake not in the least. 

Dirghatamas, an ancient Hindu sage

The image above shows one of the wheels of Surya’s “chariot”. Surya is a sun god in Hinduism that has a temple in Konark, Odisha; which has been declared as a UN Heritage Site.
