🌞 Konark Sun Temple is a 13th-century  temple at Konark about 35 kilometres  northeast from Puri on the coastline of Odisha, India. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site. 🌞  Dedicated to the Hindu sun god Surya, the temple complex has the appearance of a 30 m high chariot with immense wheels and horses, all carved from stone. Once over 61 m high, much of the temple is now in ruins, in particular the large shikara tower over the sanctuary; at one time this rose much higher than the mandapa that remains. It is a classic illustration of the Odisha style of Architecture . 🌞  The temple symbolises the majestic movement of the Sun god’s chariot, with twelve pairs of wheels drawn by seven horses evoking Sun movement across the sky. At the entrance of the temple stands a Nata Mandir, where the temple dancers performed in homage to the Sun god. The structures and elements that have survived are famed for their intricate artwork, iconography, and themes, including erotic kama and mithuna scenes. 🌞  The cause of the destruction of the Konark temple is unclear and remains a source of controversy. Theories range from natural damage to deliberate destruction of the temple in the course of being sacked several times by Muslim armies between the 15th and 17th centuries. This temple was called the Black Pagoda in European sailor accounts as early as 1676 because its great tower appeared black.  Similarly, the Jagannath Temple in Puri was called the White Pagoda. Both temples served as important landmarks for sailors in the Bay of Bengal.

El Qorikancha era un templo sagrado donde el máximo dios inca fue adorado: el Inti (Sol). También fue el centro religioso, geográfico y político de Cusco. Así que algunos cronistas lo describen como el templo laminado en oro; Sus suelos y paredes, incluyendo el jardín, tenían animales y plantas a tamaño real, también de oro. Más tarde fue casi completamente saqueado, así que también los dominicanos construyeron en 1530 el templo de Santo Domingo en la cima de los cimientos del Qorikancha. -- The Qorikancha was a sacred temple where the maximum Inca god was worshipped: the Inti (Sun).

Later it was almost completely looted, so also the Dominicans built in 1530 the temple of Santo Domingo on top of the foundations of the Qorikancha.

Historical places, caves, temples, and the likes, have the power in them to unleash the softer side of me. Every cut, design, stone and sculpture holds so much to learn from, and memories of so many people, each of them have seen. Its like they have a life of their own. This place will hold a special place in my heart, forever ♥️. The weather that day particularly, was so clean, pure, and serene, much like letting me know how happy my inner peace was capable of making me. 
Thanks for the click, my kid @henielkashyap
