The Eastern temple triangle of Bhubaneshwar, Puri and Konark is an architectural feast. Apart from being one of the most popular religious routes the sheer beauty of these temples is breathtaking. The Sun Temple at Konarak is dedicated to the Sun God Surya. In the shape of a chariot the architecture reflects the science of time. The wheels have 24 spokes symbolising the 24 hours of the day. The chariot itself is pulled by 7 horses signifying the seven days of the week.While both Puri and Bhubaneshwar are also a treasure trove of temple architecture, do not miss out on the beach at Puri or the shopping at Bhubaneshwar.
