Brihadisvara Temple (also known as the Big Temple -- for obvious reasons!) in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, is one of the three Great Living Chola Temples. It was completed by Chola king Raja Raja I in 1010 to celebrate a military victory, and is one of the oldest temples dedicated to Lord Shiva in India.
Rani ki Vav (The Queen's Stepwell)
A surprisingly recent archaeological find in Patan, Gujarat, Rani ki Vav was flooded by the nearby Saraswati River and silted over until the late 1980s. The step well, which is undoubtedly India's most awe-inspiring, dates back to the 11th century during the reign on the Solanki dynasty. Apparently, the widow of ruler Bhimdev I had it built in his memory.
Konark Sun Temple
The 13th century Konark Sun Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the grandest and most well-known sun temple in India. This magnificent temple was built by King Narasimhadeva I of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty. It was made as a giant chariot for Surya the Sun God, with 12 pairs of wheels pulled by seven horses.
