11th Century Sun Temple was built by King Bhimdev, and designed so that the early morning sun would shine down on the image of Surya, the Sun God, during the equinoxes. Inside are erotic sculptures. The outside of the temple has intricate carvings.
Set in front of the temple is a huge, sunken rectangular baoli, that contains about 100 shrines.
A three day dance festival is held each January at this complex.

Directions: 100km northwest of Ahmedabad, the temple can be reached by bus (3hours)
