On the shores of the Bay of Bengal, bathed in the rays of the rising sun, the temple at Konarak in India is a monumental representation of the sun god Surya's chariot; its 24 wheels are decorated with symbolic designs and it is led by a team of six horses. Built in the 13th century, it is one of India's most famous Brahman sanctuaries.
