Your question is your answer.\n. \nKonark Sun Temple is a 13th-century Sun Temple (also known as the Black Pagoda), at Konark, in Orissa.\n. \nKonark is a small town in Puri… district of the state of Orissa, India, on the Bay of Bengal, sixty-five kilometres from Bhubaneswar. It is the site of the 13th-century Sun Temple (also known as the Black Pagoda), built in black granite by King Narasimhadeva I (AD 1236-1264) of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty. The temple is a World Heritage Site. It takes the form of the chariot of Surya (Arka), the sun god, and is heavily decorated with stone carving.
About 700 years old.
Orissa is in the Eastern Part of India, Surrounded by Andhra Pradesh, Chattishgarh, West Bengal and Bay of Bengal.
The sun god has been one of the most widely worshipped gods in the world, with temples on every continent other than Antarctica and Australia. Even the Temple believed to have… been built by Solomon in Jerusalem, which is often thought to have been used solely for the monotheistic God of Judaism, was also used by sun worshippers, as we find in Ezekiel 8:16: " And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east ." The kings of Judah even kept horses dedicated to the sun and there were chariots for the sun until they were removed from the Temple by King Josiah as inimical to monotheism (2 Kings 23:11).
Because the chariot used by lord Sun is having seven horses, Konark temple is nothing but the stone image of that chariot with lord Sun.more specifically the 7 horses represen…t the 7 component colors of the sunlight. Its an honor to say that we Indians knew it before the legendary ISSAC NEWTON.
As per my knowledge there are two famous sun temple in India out of which one is most prominent world famous Konark sun temple in Odisha and another one is located in Gujarat.…
