Sun Temple - Review
The Sun Temple or Surya Mandir is one of the most important attractions of the city of Gwalior. This place is visited by numerous tourists every year. The temple was constructed by G.D. Birla in 1988. He was a famous industrialist of India. It is also inspired from the Konark Sun Temple.
The Surya Mandir is a new comer in the list of the grand historical buildings and monuments of Gwalior and it does not even have any historical significance compared to the formers. The only thing that makes it such an important attraction is its eye catching architecture and beauty.
The temple has one of the best statues of the Sun God which is the highlight here. The contrasting color combination of the exteriors with the interiors of the temple is another fantastic feature. The exterior is built of red sandstone whereas the interiors are made of marble. This gives a more exotic look to the temple.
