Konark - The Land of Sun God

Konark Temple In Orissa
Konark Temple In Orissa

Recently I had visited to "Konark" with my family. It is situated in the district of Puri in the state of Orissa. From Puri town we took a vehicle and drove on the National Highway 5 for one hour, and covered a distance of sixty Kilometers. There we checked into "Pantha Niwas" (Guest House) and we then went to the Sun Temple of Konark. Sun Temple is situated on the shore of Bay of Bengal. The scene of the sunrise is really heart stopping. The first ray of the sun directly comes to the feet of the "God Sun".

There are many reasons why one should visit this place like it is a religious temple telling the story of the King Langula Narsingho Deo who employed 1200 workers to build this temple, apart from this reason one prominent reason is that one can cover maximum places in this area within 100 kilometer like "World famous Lord Jagannath Temple", "World famous Kaling war (Daya river) spot" and Lord Buddhas first preaching place Khandagiri. One can cover maximum of historical places by taking a visit to Konark.
