The "Konark Wheel"... . The Sun Temple of Konark, Odisha was designed in the shape of a huge chariot drawn by 7 mighty spirited horses on 12 pairs of gorgeously decorated wheels at its base... The size of each wheel is 9 feet 9 inches in diameter, having 8 wider spokes & 8 thinner spokes... Out of these 24 wheels, 6 are on either side of the main temple, 4 are on each side of the small sanctum & 2 on each side of the steps on the eastern front... Various theories have been advocated regarding the significance of the Konark Wheel... According to some, the 7 horses represent the 7 days of a week, the 12 pairs of wheels represent the 12 months of a year, the 24 wheels signify the 24 hours of a day & the 8 major spokes signify the 8 "praharas"(3 hour period) of a day... According to others, the wheels of the chariot have been interpreted as the "Wheel of Life"... They portray the cycle of creation, preservation & achievement of realisation... These 12 pairs of wheels may also possibly represent the 12 zodiac signs... Some also believe that the Wheel of Konark is the same as the Dharmachakra of the Buddhists - The Wheel of Karma, The Wheel of the Law... The Konark Wheel has 8 wider spokes & 8 thinner spokes... The distance between two wider spokes is of 3 hours(180 minutes)... The thinner spoke between two wider spokes is of 1.5 hours(90 minutes)... There are 30 beads between one wider spoke to the next thinner spoke and each bead represents 3 minutes... The sundial shows time in an anti-clockwise manner & the top centre wider spoke represents 12 o' clock midnight... . . . #natgeotravel #natgeotravellerindia #natgeoindia #indiaphotosociety #indiapictures #indiatravelgram #travelbugindia #travelrealindia #indiaview #indiaclicks #_instaindia_ #discoverindia #storiesofindia #indiabeats #indiagram #yourshot_india #lonelyplanetindia #indiadiaries #igramming_india #ig_india #incredibleindia #photographers_of_india #indianshutterbugs #desi_diaries #wanderlust #mypixeldiary

I like the mountains because they make me feel small The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself , the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no "meaning," they are meaning  They are beautiful And going to the mountains is going home wanderlust.. #himachal #himachalpradesh#traveltheworld #travellife #travelbug#himalayas #travelporn #mountainview#mountainlove #mothernature#igramming_india #_soi #natureonly#natureshots #natgeoyourshot#natgeotravelpic #ourplanetdaily#discoverglobe #natureporn#myphotography #magnumphotos#incredibleindia #indiagram#lonelyplanetindia #indiapictures #bbcearth
