One has to admire the ancient Indians and their architectural skills.. Konark sun temple is one of its kind which stands tall amid-st history elaborating the architectural skills of the ancient Indians.

When I visited some renovation was carried out by the government, nevertheless the architectural marvel stands tall.

I would rate this as one of the must visit places in India.

What remains of the Konark Sun Temple is just 40% of what it used to be, and it's still a mind blowing monument!
It's sheer scale, beauty, construction, its tales, and it's presence are impressive and fascinating.
I would recommend visiting early morning and also in the afternoon - the play of light being different at both hours.
Truly a masterpiece of architecture.

We reached Sun temple around 11 am. Within one hour we reached here from puri. It took us one and half hour too see the whole temple. In Orissa it is a must watch. It is world heritage site. We purchased tickets which was around Rs 10 but now exactly I do not remember. We also hired a tour guide. And he explained it well. We were surprised that in 13th century how craftsmen built such a beautiful temple without any machine and computer.
