Home » Destinations » Ranchi » Attractions » Sun Temple

About 40 kms from Ranchi on Tata Road near Bundu, stands the elegant Sun Temple fashioned in the form of huge chariot with richly decorated 18 wheels, 9 on each side, and seven lively horses ready to gallop. The surroundings of the temple, studded with a pond serving as a sacred place for Chhathavratis are actually a natures bounty to the people of Chhotanagpur.

A beautiful dharmashala, meant for the pilgrims is under construction. There is a sacred pond with calm and clean water, many devotees take a dip in this holy pond, with a belief that the dip in this pond will give them relief from all the sins done knowingly and unknowingly. The pond is also used by devotees during the Chhath Puja for worshiping of the sun. The temple is an ideal tourist destination for devotees as well as for local visitors.
