Konark is an outstanding mixture of fabulous temple architecture and striking natural beauty. A small locale in the state of Orissa (currently known as Odisha), Konark is famous for its ancient temple, appealing and exotic beach and of course for the highly praised dance festival. Konark, also called Arka-Tirtha, the name is in fact a blend of Kona and Arka which denotes the sun around the angle. The exceptional monuments of Konark resonate with the essence of Oriyan architecture. The yearly Dance Festival of Konark gets honours from different parts of the world, here beguiling performances of eminent classical dancers offer a sumptuous and eye pleasing feast.

The Sun Temple, which makes a wonderful backdrop, adds to the appeal of this dance festival. This five day long cultural show helps this quiet town turn into a bubbling tourist destination. Moreover, Konark also holds the Sun Festival, where the pilgrims take a holy dip in the sea before the sun rises and proffer their prayers to Surya the sun god.
