Konark Temple was built in 1278 AD by the Ganga King Narasimha Deva.

It is located in the Indian state of Orissa, near the Bay of Bengal.

Built by the King Narasimhadeva in the thirteenth century,
Konark Sun Temple is located , in the state of Orissa near the sacred city of Puri.
Around the base of the temple, and up the walls and roof, are carvings in the erotic style. There are images of animals, foliage, men, warriors on horses and other interesting patterns. There are three images of the Sun God, positioned to catch the rays of the sun at dawn, noon and sunset.
The entire temple has been conceived as a chariot of the sun god with 24 wheels, each about 10 feet in diameter, with a set of spokes and elaborate carvings. Seven horses drag the temple. Two lions guard the entrance, crushing elephants. A flight of steps lead to the main entrance.
