We are pleased to take part in the weekly Thursday Challenge series organized by A picture related to a new theme announced each week will be posted here. Today’s theme is the “Round”.

The photo below of a chariot wheel was taken at the Sun Temple in Korark in the state of Odhisa (Orissa) in India. The intricately carved 13th century temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The temple, dedicated to the Sun God, is shaped like a chariot with 6 wheels on each side. Each of the 12 chariot wheels is a sundial and the shadow cast by the spokes can be used to tell the precise time of the day.
