Konark Sun Temple

Situated in the state of Odisha,
It still glorifies India's ancient era.
Also called Black Pagoda,
It was supposedly built by King Narasimhadeva.
It was dedicated to the Sun God Surya,
Being one of the wonders of India.
Built in the form of a gigantic chariot,
It's exquisite stone sculptures captivate us a lot.
Unfortunately the main sanctum collapsed,
And it's exact reason is still in dark.
Renovations are periodically done to keep it upright,
The temple is an UNESCO World Heritage Site!

    Like the way you educate us a little on this monument and its symbolism. Nice job...
