Ravaged by time, the Sun Temple stands strong in Modhera

Mar 01, 2020 04:29 IST

Dedicated to the solar deity, the Sun Temple in Gujarat's Modhera is a resplendent blend of history, science and art. The temple was designed in a way that every equinox, the first rays of the Sun fall on the deity's head. The temple was constructed on a lotus-shaped structure and features detailed carvings of the Sun along with the four elements - air, water, fire and the Earth. While the temple has been looted by many and has been a victim of earthquakes, visitors still flock in large numbers to marvel at its beauty.
