Nobel Prize winner Tagore described it as ‘poetry in stone’ and it would be a crime to give this monument a miss. The 13th century Konark Sun Temple is an architectural marvel that resembles a chariot on 24 wheels, with each wheel denoting an hour of the day. Although much of the temple now lies in ruins, it still is an imposing sight towering into the sky. The massive structure has carvings all over it and features sculptures of Hindu deities, apsaras, animals, aquatic creatures, birds, mythological creatures, erotic figures (known as maithunas) and friezes narrating the Hindu texts.
