SUN TEMPLE

Overview

Founded way back in the 11th century by King  Bhimdev I of the Solanki dynasty, Sun temple is placed on a hillock in Modhera, around 106 km north-westwards of Ahmedabad. One of the most beautiful Hindu temples in Gujarat, it is built in such a way that the sun shines on the image of Surya chakra, from sunrise to sunset. The main hall and the shrine are supported by beautifully-carved pillars with sculptures of gods and demons.
