alone amidst the sand dunes which rise from the Bay, the sun Temple of Konark, also
known as Black pagoda, is the crowning glory of Kalinga School of temple architecture of
ancient Orissa. Built in the 13 th century by kind Narasingha Dev of Ganga Dynasty, the
temple was designed in the shape of a colossal chariot with twenty four giants wheels
carrying Surya the Sun God across the heaves hauled by seven mighty and stunningly
carved horses caught in the Symphny of stone, lies in partial ruin. Koanrk has also a very
lovely beach. Glorious sunrise on the beach is an unforgettable sight.
