Konark, also known as Arka-Tirtha, is known for its fantastic temple of Lord Surya, The Sun God. It is situated on the seashore, 33 km north of Puri and 64 from Bhubaneshwar. It was constructed of black stone in the beginning of the 13th century, and it is considered one of the most vivid architectural showpieces of Hindu India. Despite the fact that the ''Black Pagoda'' is in ruins, the remaining porch area and other structures of this temple complrx remain a crown jewel of Orissian artwork.
