Konark, a village in the state of Orissa, is situated at a distance of 66 km from the state capital Bhubaneswar and around 35 km from the popular sea beach of Puri. The Sun Temple located in Konark is one of the most marvelous tourist destinations in Orissa. It can be easily reached from other locations like Bhubaneswar, Puri, Chilka, Gopalpur and Chandrabhaga, among others. The Sun god worshipped in Ark Kshetra is also called Konark. In 'Brahma Purana' the Sun God in Ark-kshetra has been described as Konaditya.
