Stop At: Sun Temple, On Becharaji Highway, Modhera 384212 India

Today your day starts with a pick up from the hotel and a day excursion to Modhera. The village of Modhera is home to the Sun temple, one of the finest exemplar of the Indian style of architecture that existed during its period. Built during the 1062 A.D., the Sun Temple is made in honor of the Hindu Sun-God, Surya. The temple stands high on a plinth that overlooks a deep stone-steeped tank. A masterpiece in itself, the edifice is magnificently carved with Gods and Goddesses, birds, beasts and flowers. The temple was constructed by King Bhimdev I, (1026-27) and draws inspiration from the famous Sun Temple of Konark, Orissa and predates it only by 200 years. Alike the Konark Sun Temple, the Sun Temple at Modhera is designed in such a way so that the dawn sun shone on the image of the sun God, at the time of the equinoxes. The main shrine and hall of the complex can be reached through a pillared porch. Just like the temple of Somnath, this temple was also ruined by Mohamed of Ghazni. Later you will be driven back to Ahmedabad.
