Water-logging at Konark Sun Temple disappoints tourists

News

Konark, Oct 21: The precincts of the world famous Sun temple got inundated due to heavy rainfall over the past two days. 

Some visitors were seen wading through knee-deep water that accumulated on the temple premises while many others returned, unable to visit the 13th century shrine Friday because of water logging. 

Intellectuals as well as social activists blamed the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the conservator of the shrine, for frequent water logging inside the Sun temple. 

Locals and some visitors claimed that the temple premises has gone under at least 2 feet water as the coastal town witnessed heavy rains, powered by a low pressure in the past two days.
