Description:The temple of Martand, the most magnificent and impressive of all the temples in Kashmir, is situated at a distance of five miles to the east of Anantnag town. Although the temple stands in ruins yet it still looks full of grandeur.It is situated at the top of a high plateau and overlooks the plains of the Valley which wear the garment of verdure.
These plains contain clusters of lakes, streams, springs and rivers and the whole Valley is surrounded by snow-capped mountains. In spring particularly, the perfumed air at Martand caresses one`s face and seems to reach the heart and one feels a vague longing for an undefined happiness of divinity. It is a masterpiece of the site and beauty of Nature which gives the Sun-temple its unique and superb grandeur
