The temple complex has three components: Gudhamandapa, the shrine hall; Sabhamandapa, the assembly hall and Kunda, the reservoir. The halls have intricately carved exterior and pillars. The reservoir has steps to reach the bottom and numerous small shrines. The architecture of temple is very intricate and detailed and is reflective of the Maru-Gujara Chalukyan style of architecture and leaves you awestruck. The sun temple is an exemplary embodiment of the exquisite craftsmanship of the golden ages and is a must visit for all history fanatics.

Rani Ki Vav or 'Queen's Stepwell', a 900-year-old structure listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a distinctive form of water storage system located in Patan, on the banks of River Saraswati. The well was excavated in the 1960s in a well-protected state as it was buried under slit for sanctuaries. In addition to this, Rani Ka Vav was an important centre for socializing among the locals as well as taking refuge from the heat. It's an excellent example of turning something functional into a piece of art. Its construction is attributed to Udayamati, daughter of Khengara of Saurashtra, queen of the 11th-century Chaulukya dynasty and spouse of Bhima I.
