JALRAPATAN - THE SUN TEMPLE

Renowned as the City of Bells, this historic ancient city houses many shrines dedicated to Jain and Hindu gods. The recent excavations unearthed some Buddhist Cave temples of very great spiritual significance. The Sun temple though built with extraordinary architectural skill and superb sculptural adornments is not holding its attraction as it is during its heyday. Built in the Orissa temple style, it casts spell by its sky-high spires and domes embellished with dazzling Kalasas and fluttering saffron dyed flags. The high tower on the garbha griha bears striking resemblance to that of the Lingaraj temple of Bhuvaneswar. Its imposing huge dimensions adorned with sculptural designs detain the viewers and raise their hands in veneration. There are many mini-shrines installed with several ador2ble deities. The dimensions and artistry in making of the images are beyond description. The pillars are exquisitely carved and are enhancing the visual appeal of the entire structure both inside and outside.- The. extensive use of marble is lending special charm to the temple. The image of the presiding deity - Sun is a master specimen of excellent craftsmanship deserving unqualified appreciation. A visit lifts and worship confers bliss.  The Rajput Patronage, needless to add defies description and this Sun-temple adds another colourful feather to their glittering cap.

It lies 64 km off Kota, accessible by four wheelers from Kota in Rajasthan.
