The wheel at Konark Temple, Konark

The 13th century Sun Temple at Konark in Odisha, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temple is shaped in the form of a chariot of the sun god. The exquisiteness of the sun temple lies in the chariot and the stone carved wheels. The carving is exquisite, with statuaries etched on all the spokes and along the rim of the wheels.
