The magnificent Sun Temple at Konark is the culmination of Orissan temple architecture, and one of the most stunning monuments of religious architecture in the world.Built by the King Narasimhadeva in the thirteenth century, the entire temple was designed in the shape of a colossal chariot with seven horses and twentyfour wheels , carrying the sun god, Surya, across the heavens. Surya has been a popular deity in India since the Vedic period .
The fragment from the temple's wall:
The Temple is a huge construction and stands on the chariot with 12 pairs of wheels. It is believed that the wheels represent month or hours. The chariot is cared of 7 pair of horses - represent week days. Each wheel is decorated with lots of ornaments and figures. Bellow you can see the one of the wheels.
Konark the Sun Temple is famous for its erotic sculptures, which can be found primarily on the second level of the porch structure. It will become immediately apparent upon viewing them that the frank nature of their content is combined with an overwhelming tenderness and lyrical movement.
Love making or sex didn't have the meaning, the most important was the "magical juice" what was coming from such relations - the juice of immortality and eternal life.
