, is a rectangular tank of 15m height below the ground level. The word Lolark means 'trembling Sun' - denoting the wavering image of Surya
, the Sun God, in the water of the tank. A flight of steep steps is provided to approach the tank. Thousands of devotees come here during
to worship the Sun God.
