Surya Temple, Modhera:

This image is showing an image of Surya Temple which is in Modera Gujarat. The Surya Temple was built in the 11th century C.E. under the Solanki dynasty. The temple is dedicated to Surya, the Sun God, there are similar temples at Konarak in Odisha, and at Martand in Kashmir. In front of the temple is a large tank with steep steps leading down to the sacred water which is used for ritualistic ablutions. These stairs have also been decorated with small shrines and niches for placing offerings ofdiyas(lamps). A part of the temple has fallen into ruin, however, we can still see the grand scale in which the decorations were done for this temple.
