Floating Temple of Konark

Floating Statue of Konark Temple : Proof of Levitation in Ancient World In India

A temple constructed in the pyramidal style of Maya asura once had a huge capstone made from loadstone whilst another was said to be located underground which allowed the temples deity to float in the air.

Although damaged and missing its capstone the Sun temple at Konark temple still stands today.

Iron bands are incorporated with the courses of stone blocks which compose the temple wall as if to shape the magnetic lines of force created by the temples capstone.

The Uniqueness of the Sun Temple at Konark lies in the fact that it was built using the concept of magnets.

The peak of the temple was said to be a giant 52 ton magnet. The statue of the Sun inside the temple was said to be floating free in air based on the unique arrangements of the main magnet and the reinforced magnets around the temple walls.

Between every two stone pieces in the temple there lies an iron plate. The temple was constructed from oxidized and weathered ferruginous sandstone by King Narasimhadeva-I of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty.
