  • kanakeshwar i.e. "SUN" kanak means gold and it is very bight and precious as god sun is called Kankeshwar there arevery few Sun temples in inida one is Konark in orissa and another in Modhera gujarat in Maharashtwra there are very few The idol is in Black Gnndaki stone and very bright eyes and very immpressive body language are the prominent features. The roof of main Temple is covered with copper sheets as it shines brightly then in the Sabhamandap is decorated by beautiful craft paper flowers during festivals
