KONARK
The Unique Seat of Sun-God

He employed twelve hundred artisans, who laboured for sixteen long years to complete and give it the present shape. It is estimated that two hundred crores, the entire revenue of the state collected over twelve years was diverted to making it a superb piece of art and a place of worship, matchless in conception, peerless in execution and timeless in reputation. It has immortalized his ambition of commemorating his victory over certain parts of Bengal and proudly celebrated absolute and uninterrupted freedom from Muslim domination of his country. As pointed out by the historians it is more splendid than that one built by his grand father at Puri. And lo! more ornamental rather monumental than that of Tanjore, and deemed a marvel of all times. This regally grandiose monument is dedicated to the Sun God ,the lokab handu-pratyaksha daivam, visible to all eyes, adorable with hearts hands and souls.
