There is a small museum located inside Modhera Sun Temple compound. As you enter through the main gate, which is close to the ticket counter, the very first cut on your left takes you to this museum. Public washrooms are located behind this museum, which were not very clean. This is a single storey museum with lot of sculptures preserved from different periods.

The Sun temple complex in Modhera is built in Chaulukya style. The temple complex has three components - the shrine  garbhagriha in a hall called gudhamandapa, the outer assembly hall sabhamandapa and a sacred reservoir with water in it.    We sat around this water reservoir for a long time, before we saw the main temple on the top. I walked around all four walls of this stepwell at Modhera Sun Temple. It was pretty hot in the month of October, so we took some small breaks around shade.
