Abstract (in English)

The State of Orissa in lndia is known for its series of monuments illustrating the history of the region from its inception to decline. The Sun temple of Konarka depicts the highest stage of development of tangible and intangible Heritage in the 12th century AD. Even in its present state of ruin it stands in a majestic dignity in the midst of vast stretch of sand by a roaring sea, in a lonely and desolate environment.
