The name Konark is derived from the word Kona+Arka=Konark, which means the Arka (Sun) of Kona (corner), the corner being that of Trikona or Triangle on the bank of the River Kushabhadra. Again it may be known from if that place is in any specific angle is being noted to that of the sun.

It is said that the temple was built at a cost of twelve years' revenue. Twelve hundred workmen toiled twelve long years to complete it.

There is again the fascinating story of a country boy, is a saga of courage and sacrifice of a 12 Year Old boy named Dharmapada or Dharama, the son of Bisu Maharana, the chief mason, who fixed the kalasa or Mundi (The Head of the Temple) at the top of the temple, Where all the workmen were failed to do so in despite of repeated attempts, but the spirited boy seeing his father Bisu Maharana, in agony, did the impossible feat at midnight. And for the shake of the humiliation of (Bara Saha Badhai) 1200 workmen he flung himself into the sea. So that it often called a phrage in colocal language that “Bara Saha Badhei re Dai kimba Pua re Dai” Either You are responsible for 1200 workmen of responsible for your son only?
