The Prime Minister Modi also shared a 55-second video on Twitter. This video showing the Prime Minister’s love of nature and craftsmanship is seen in the finest specimen of the Modhera Sun Temple sculpture built at Modhera village, 30 km south of Patan, Gujarat. This temple is considered to be one of the oldest temples of the Sun God.

It is noteworthy that the specialty of the temple is that lime has not been used anywhere to make joints. This Sun Temple is a unique example of unique architecture and craft art. The pillars made in the temple’s ‘Sabhamandapa’ are depicted with exquisite workmanship depicting the Ramayana and Mahabharata episodes in addition to portraits of various deities.
