  • From the roadside it looks nothing special and majestic. But once you move in you will find the sculpture on the rocks. Its a good visit for around 10 mins.  more »
  • Built in the 8th century, the Martand SunTemple is a marvellous testament to the architectural achievements of Kashmir's ancient Karkota Dynasty. It lies forgotten and in shambles at 8km from Anantnag...  more »

  • One can only imagine it's grandeur looking at the ruins. Once magnificent temple is now surrounded by slums on all sides.
  • Had been to the place. It is quit isolated structure. You may need local help to reach there. This one is old sun temple. You will find the new one in residential area before reaching here.
  • Standing majestically on a plateau above the flood plains of Kashmir are the stupendous ruins of the Sun Temple of Martand. Described as “a dream in stone designed by Titans and finished by jewellers”, the temple of Martand is part of the legacy of the indomitable Lalitaditya Mukhtapid of the Karkota dynasty of Kashmir which was once the centre of a mighty empire governed from the capital city of Parihaspora. Once the city of smiles, it is today a site of ruined stones. The episode sees the glory of Kashmir through the lens of one of it’s favourite sons.

  • I was here today i.e. 19-Feb-2017. Though being just 14 kms from my home, I've never been here before.. It was an awesome feeling to be here finally, plus "Bismil" song from Haider movie playing on speakers while exploring this great place added aroma to everything around..
