About konark

Konark is a beautiful medium-sized town in the state of Odisha. The name ‘Konark’ originates from the Sanskrit words ‘Kona’, which means angle, and ‘Arka’, which translates to mean the sun. The town gets its name from the famous Konark Temple dedicated to the Sun God Surya. \nThe Konark Sun Temple, which was constructed in the 13th century, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 1984. The temple is by far the most popular tourist spot in Konark. Konark Beach is another favourite haunt for tourists with its turquoise water and golden sand. While the beach is ideal for long walks and sunbathing, the strong currents make swimming in the sea unsafe. \nThe annual Magha Saptami Mela takes place at the Konark beach, where followers take a sacred bath before watching the sun rise. In December, the annual Konark Dance Festival draws many visitors leading to a rise in tourism in Konark.
