Sundarnarayan Temple
 

Sundarnarayan temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is located on the elevated west bank of river Godavari at the corner of Ahilyabai Holkar Bridge around 1kms from Central Bus Stand. Built in 1756 by Gangadhar Yashwant Chandrachud, this temple facing to the east has three porches each with with balcony seating, lobed arches and slightly spherical domes. The doorways inside the porches are headed by angled eaves and serpentine pediments and the walls are decorated with beautiful carvings of Hanuman, Narayana and Indra. The sanctum of the temple is adorn with a black idol of Lord Vishnu, flanked by the idols of Lakshmi and Saraswati. One of the notable feature of the temple is that it is erected at such an angle that on a particular day of every year (mostly on 21st March), the rays of the rising sun first fall exactly upon the idols.
