If you are visiting the nearby Nalanda University, then you cannot afford to miss this place. There are very few Sun Temples in our country and this is one of them. It has been recently excavated and needs to be promoted by the government.

One of the few Surya Mandir in World. A worthwhile place for history lovers and people who love mythology. Although this is also a scientific place as it is related to Surya, The Sun, and hence the Astronomy.
