The Sun Temple, Modhera, Gujarat, India. Built in 1026 AD by a king, the temple is very well preserved and depicts an essence of ancient architecture, which is indeed unique. The temple complex comprises three elements: a big water reservoir, a pillared hall and the main temple.Indian traditional art is famous for the erotic motifs, that are represented in this temple as well. For people of that era sex was an act of creating a new life, it wasn’t suppressed or shameful.
