Stepped Pond , Modhera, Gujarat,India


The Surya Kund, which is a deep, stepped tank right in the front of the temple, was earlier used to store pure water. Although there is nothing more than accumulated rainwater presently, it is believed that earlier there used to be an underground spring.

The great Sun Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the solar deity Surya, located at  Modhera in India. It is situated on the bank of the river Pushpavati. It was built in 1026-27 CE during the reign of Bhima I of the Chalukya dynasty. This great temple was destroyed by the iconoclastic Muslim invader Mahmud of Ghazni from Afghanistan and no worship has been  offered here thereafter. It is now a protected monument maintained by Archaeological Survey of India.
