Question 512 e: The Golden Star!

Right. Try not using tineye for this one.
I mean, you'll resort to it, anyway.

Observe this picture.
Looks old. Centuries. The major clue lies in the picture. Will you please enlighten me as to which structure this.. um.. thing is a part of?

Straightforward enough.

The Sun Temple, Konark
