Konark BeachSituated 36 kilometers from Puri and 64km from Bhubaneswar in the State of Orissa, Konark Temple also known as the Black Pagoda from its dark colour seen from a distance. The Sun temple, also known as 'Konark Temple' and 'Black Pagoda' is considered as an Orissan temple architectural, engineering wonder and one of the finest monuments of religious architecture in the world.


The entire temple complex in Konark is conceived by its architect, Sibei Samantaray, in the shape of a chariot with seven horses (three on the north and four on the south) and 24 spoke gigantic wheels on each side of the temple to pull the Sun God, Surya, across the heavens.


Great art work
The great building work at Konark is the inspiration of King Narashima of the Ganga dynasty. partly in ruins beacause of its close proximity to sea and the softness of the ground, the sun temple took 1200 masons and sculptors twelve years to build and cost the state exchequer twelve years of revenue. It is little difficult to write about Konark because many poets of India have celebrated it in verse. One can't conceive what it was in its heyday.


Now only the Mukhasala or the porch and the Nata Mandap or the Dance pavillion are left. Yet the porch alone rivals the great temple at Bhubaneswar in height and is superior in art to anything else build in orissa or may be else where . . Some of the gigantic statues like the war elephants or the famous horses show the artists' power of expression and carpenters' skill in handling such massive materials. And yet the scenes of love and war, of dance and music have been finished with superb attention to details.


The lady with the suggestion of an enigmatic smile on her lips, the amorous copue for whom the rest of world is irrelevant or the horse, brimming with power in every limb is the product of the hands and minds of masters . The work of art is dedicated to God and the identity or the personality of the artist is irrelevant.
