Built in the thirteenth century on the shores of the Bay of Bengal, the sun temple Konarak is one of India's most famous Brahman sanctuaries. This book provides a rich descriptive account of this treasured example of the Orissan style of temple architecture. Placing Konarak in its historical context, Thomas Donaldson proceeds to discuss the architectural and sculptural details of the primary temple and the adjoining shrines.
