Did you know?
The first rays of the sun fall on the image of the diety Surya, or the Sun God in Modhera Sun Temple at the time equinoxes.
Modhera Sun Temple was built by King Bhimdev of the Solanki Dynasty in 1026 AD. The temple, 102 km from Ahmedabad, situated on the banks of river Pushpavati, is dedicated to the Hindu Sun – God. A very interesting feature of the temple is that the first rays of the sun fall on the image of the diety Surya, or the Sun God at the time equinoxes. Currently the temple is under the supervision of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Prayers are not offered in the Temple now.
