This article is assessed to be Start class. Suggestions for improvements from Chez can be found at the comments subpage. The article has some good pictures, but it is still weak in areas. Per the article process grading scheme, "major editing is needed, most material for a complete article needs to be added. This article still needs to be completed, so an article cleanup tag is inappropriate at this stage." Happy editing, [sd] 23:15, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

|* The infobox is a decent start. If the temple had been there for 1000 years surely there would be a lot of information about it all along its history. Try providing more details about the temple history, architectural style and about the king who built it. This page needs a free license picture. Try incorporating inline referencing.

Removed info /Rewrite
The Sun temple is of a unique architecture. The temple comprises three separate, axially aligned and integrated elements: Surya Kund, Sabha Mandap and Guda Mandap.
This Suryakunda, also known as Ramakunda, is a large rectangular stepped tank measuring 53.6 x 36.6 meters under the east face of sabhamandap used to store pure water. Devotees were required to perform ceremonial ablutions here before worshiping the Sun God.
The Suryakund is a finest example of geometry. The organization of stone into composition gives shape to a dazzling pattern of art. It is proportioned with innumerable stone steps leading devotees down to its base. 108 miniature shrines are carved in between the steps inside the tank. Also number 108 considered to be auspicious by Hindus as Hindu rosary has same number of beads.
