Konark is the site of the 13th-century Sun Temple (also known as the Black Pagoda), built in black granite by King Narasimhadeva. The temple is one of the most important Brahman sanctuaries, and is a world heritage site. It takes the form of the chariot of Surya, the sun god, and is heavily decorated with stone carving. The temple is now partly in ruins, and a collection of its sculptures is housed in the Sun Temple Museum, which is run by the Archaeological Survey of India. The poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote of Konark: "here the language of stone surpasses the language of man". Konark is also home to an annual dance festival, held every December, devoted to classical Indian dance forms, including the traditional classical dance of Orissa, odissi.

Konark beach is a popular tourist destination, though the waters are deceptively calm. Its main attraction lies in its views of the temple. Posted by Picasa

The main temple has two "stories", although the bottom one (at the level of which this is taken) is solid. There are two "buildings" (of course, all part of the one rock), a large main one, and a smaller forebuilding with a Nandi (statue of a seated cow) inside it. We stand here at the base of the forebuilding. At the upper left corner is a raised walkway leading to the upper part of the entrance building. To the right is a free-standing plinth. Posted by Picasa

Ellora is an ancient village 30 km (18.6 miles) from the city of Aurangabad in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Famous for its monumental caves, Ellora is a World Heritage Site .
Ellora represents the epitome of Indian rock cut architecture . The 34 "caves" � actually structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills � comprised of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave temples and monasteries, were built between the 5th century and 10th century. The 12 Buddhist, 17 Hindu and 5 Jain caves, built in close proximity, demonstrate the religious tolerance prevalent during this period of Indian history. Posted by Picasa
