Konark

The famous Sun Temple in Konark is one of the biggest and oldest temples in India. The magnificent temple was built during the 12th Century and is a World Heritage Site marked by UNESCO.

The entire temple is a huge chariot with twelve wheels, pulled by fourteen ferocious horses. The temple also houses some erotic statues and drawings on the wall in its second level. But despite the blatant erotica, the lyrical and poetic values of these statues are there for everybody to notice.
