Sun Temple, Modhera

Modhera is known for the 11th century Sun temple. This temple is situated on a knoll in the village of Modhera, about 106 kms. north west of Ahmedabad. Modhera was a site of great importance at one time. The Sun Temple was built by King Bhimdev I in 1026-27 AD. This temple and the Konark Sun temple in Orissa are very similar. This similarity is that this temple was also designed in such a way so as to let the sun shine on the image of Surya, at the time of dawn. The main hall and shrine are reached through a pillared porch. The exterior of the temple is intricately and delicately carved. Mahmud of Ghazni also destroyed this temple.
