Near the river Pushpavati, there is an artistic legacy standing as Modhera Sun Temple. What carving, what detailing!!! The most amazing thing is the Kund, a water structure which is amazingly sculpted and carved. Just sit and keep watching the stones, the carving and the unmatchable beauty of the temple. Hours will be less to fulfill your thirst to see this structural art. There is also an assembly hall which is yet another place which one must not miss. There are idols, walls and pillars throughout the temple with outstanding carving. Center of this temple gives you a spiritual feel! By visiting this place, one would believe that religious places have something which gives peace and power.
