Konark Sun Temple

▪️Built in the 13th century, the Konark temple was conceived as a gigantic chariot of the Sun God, with 12 pairs of exquisitely ornamented wheels pulled by seven horses.
▪️It was built by King Narasimhadeva I, the great ruler of the Ganga dynasty.
▪️The Konark is the third link of Odisha’s Golden Triangle. The first link is Jagannath Puri and the second link is Bhubaneswar (Capital city of Odisha).
▪️This temple was also known as ‘BLACK PAGODA’ due to its dark color and was used as a navigational landmark by ancient sailors to Odisha. Similarly, the Jagannath Temple in Puri was called the “White Pagoda”.
