Konark Sun Temple reopened for visitors
Konark: Konark Sun Temple, which suffered minor damage when cyclonic storm Fani hit the coast of Odisha, was opened for the public on Tuesday, Director General of ASI said.
The Black Pagoda had been shut since May 3 following Cyclone Fani making landfall near Puri.
While the monument reopened after 11 days, visitors were seen entering the temple through manual-ticketing.
Earlier, a team of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) officials, led by Director General Usha Sharma, visited the temple and observed that there is no structural damage to the monument.
Konark Sun Temple is a 13th-century heritage monument at Konark, about 35 km northeast from Puri, on the coastline of Odisha.
