JODHPUR - THE SURYA PEMPLE

That is their charm and there lies the builders' fame.  The Sun temple is set apart from the rest in having certain features demanding unqualified adulation. The pillars and ceilings, doorways and porches are adorned with such ornate carvings that even Maya, the celestial architect stands and stares unknown to himself. True to Rajput architectural style, it has enchanting garbha griha with spacious hall in its fore, accommodating thousands during the prayer services. It may not be exaggeration if said, that even the Surya Bhagawan, in the course of his aerial journey across the sky stays for a while to drinking in the ethereal charm exuding from every frame of the magnificent shrine, the crest jewel among the temples around, says the guide. Despite eleven centuries rolled by since its inception, its irresistible visual appeal is neither vanished, nor the worship ended abruptly with departure of the princely glamorous existence. It is a miss-not Surya kshetra and visit purges of impurities of any type. Would not the might of Sun's rays penetrate into the interior part-c? Hasn't the Sun-god been deemed the life giver to the animate world? His attribute, the pratyaksha daivam here finds in fullest splendour in human form though he appears to us in his circular dazzling shape. A single visit calls forth -frequency of visits, memory sends thrills ending with "Namo Suryanarayana Namonnamaha".

It Les in Jodhpur, the state of Rajasthan, accessible by bus or train.
