On other days, two pillars before the garbhagriha would stay illuminated throughout the day, regardless of the position of the sun. All of these can only be left to the imagination now.

History Of The Sun Temple

The Sun Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the solar deity Surya located at Modhera village of Mehsana district, Gujarat. India. It is situated on the bank of the river Pushpavati. It was built after 1026-27 CE during the reign of Bhima of the Chalukyas dynasty.

The Sabhamandapa is not in continuation with Gudhamandapa but is placed little away as a separate structure. Both are built on a paved platform.[1] Their roofs have collapsed long ago leaving behind a few lower-most courses. Both roofs are 15′ 9″ in diameter but are constructed differently. The platform or plinth is inverted lotus-shaped.
1.)Gudhamandapa, the shrine hall:-

The Gudhamandapa measures 51 feet 9 inches by 25 feet 8 inches. It is almost equally divided into Gudhamandapa, the hall, and Garbhgriha, the shrine proper. Both are rectangular in plan with one projection on each of the smaller sides and two projections on each of the longer sides. These projections on the smaller sides form the entrance and the back of the shrine.
2.)Sabhamandapa, the assembly hall:-

Sabhamandapa or Rangamandapa, the assembly hall or dancing hall is parallelogram in plan with rows of pillars opening entrance on each side diagonally. The extensively carved exterior has a series of recessed corners giving an impression of the star-like plan of it.[There are 52 intricately carved pillars. Madhusudan Dhaky has suggested that the sabhamandapa may have been later addition based on style and construction.

The main entrance lies in the west. There are steps to reach from one terrace to another on the right angle to the terrace. These steps are rectangular or square except for the first step of each flight of steps which is semicircular. Several miniature shrines and niches in front of the terrace-wall have images of gods including many Vaishnavite deities and goddesses such as Shitala.
However, the sabha mandap still stands on 52 pillars, depicting the 52 weeks in year carvings of the sun, along with its unity with the other 4 elements-air, water, earth, and space- can be spotted on the walls.

MR. ENIYAVAN knowns how to make 2000 types of idlis

Eniyavan runs Mallipoo Idlis, a Chennai-based company that specializes in 30 varieties of idlis, he supplies to caterers at events, such as weddings.

MR. Eniyavam knowns how to make 2000 types of idlis and has even attempted to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by making gigantic idlis weighing 124.8kg.
For someone who started out with no experience in cooking, Eniyavan has come a long way. He hails from Coimbatore. “I dropped out of school after Class VIII,” says Eniyavan. He waited tables and washed tea glasses to earn a living and later turned an auto driver.
It was a usual day at work when a customer got into his auto with a huge trough of idli batter. She was Chandra, who made idlis to be sold at small eateries in her locality. She went on to change the course of Eniyavan’s life — once she became a regular in his auto, Eniyavan started delivering her idlis.
Moreover, even though he has only studied up till class eight, Iniyavan has presented a doctorate from an American University for his experimentation with idlis and he wants to continue his passion for idli making and claimed ‘The world is constantly changing so why can’t idlis?”
The idli innovator often gets inspired by his children, “My idea for pizza idlis came after my son suddenly said that he wanted to eat pizza, so instead of taking him out I just found some leftover poriyal and make a pizza ildi and he loved it.
Besides attempting the 2,000 varieties Idli on Sunday, Iniyavan said that he would also be giving out tips explaining how to make the perfect fluffy idlis. “Many don’t know that replacing the water with tender coconut water can make the battery last longer and also make the idlis softer.

Also, to avoid letting the batter get spoilt overnight, only the rice should be ground and the dal should be added the next day,” he explained.

If you are in Chennai or visit in the future so you have to visit Mr. Eniyavan restaurant and taste a different kind of Idli.

I have shared below mention address for this magnificent restaurant.
