Hello Viewer,

In puranas, Earth, Fire, Water, Ether, Air, Sun, Moon and Atma all these eight forms are Shiva himself. Each of these eight forms have eight temples dedicated to them. I gathered that for Sun, the Shiva Linga (Esana) is in Konark. Has someone visited this temple? Can someone guide me? Similarly for moon (mahadeva) there is a small confusion. From what I gathered it is in Sita Kund. There are two Sita Kunds one is in West Bengal and other one is in bangladesh (Chandranath Hill). I am not sure which one is the actual temple. Can some one guide me in this as well?

Many thanks!!!
