The Sun temple
Another great example of the Solanki area is The Sun temple of Modhera, located at a distance of 99 kilometers from Ahmadabad and evidently one of the most elegant examples of the grandiose architecture of Gujarat. It was constructed by the Solanki Rajput monarchs and it exhibits chiselled Torana arches that are intricately fixed on Kirti stambhas as the doorway. The exterior portion of the temple is engraved with traditionalistic amorous depictions which can be compared to Khajuraho and Konark. There is also a well garden and the temple is situated on the shore of the Pushpawati River. The Tourism Corporation of India runs a cafeteria here along with a guest house to serve the tourists who visit the place to explore the magnificence of the architecture.
Although the Sun temple is not as humongous as people who haven't seen it make it out to be, one can't help but notice the sophisticated engravings of male and female deities, men, women, and animals which are a real treasure among the architectural structures of India. This whole view pales in comparison to the marvelous rectangular step tank which is known as Surya Kund. It is a royal 100 square meter pool abounding with as many as 180 fascinating shrines.
