Konark Sun Temple in Orissa belongs to the Kalinga school of Indian temples and was constructed by King Narasimhadeva of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty in the 13th Century. This world heritage site temple takes the form of a colossal chariot of Surya (Sun) drawn by seven spirited horses on twelve pairs of exquitely decorated wheels. Surya has been a popular deity in India since the Vedic perios. Thousands of sculptured images depict deities, celestial and human musicians, dancers, lovers, and myriad scenes of courtly life, ranging from hunts and military battles to the pleasures of courtly relaxation. The temple is famous for its erotic stone sculptures, which can be found primarily on the second level of the porch structure.
