The Sun is called Surya and is given the pride of place in Hinduism.

He is hailed as Prathyaksha Brahma, the visible Reality,Brahman.

So much so, Lord Krishna had the Hymn on Surya in the Sandhyavandan.

The portion in the Sandhyavandan,

Namassvitre Jadadeega Chakshuse, Jagat Prasoothi Stithi Naasa hethave,

Thramayeyaa thrigunaathmadhaarine, virinchi narayana sankaraathmane,

Threyas satha Savitru mandalavvaan Madhyavarthi .

was included by Yudhistir at the command of Lord Krishna, when Lord Krishna had the Amavasya, New Moon advanced by a day before the

Mahabharata war.

The Surya Mandala Stotra was taught to Arjuna By Lord Krishna(Bhavishya Puran)

So important is Surya worship Adi Shankaracharya established Saura as one of the Six systems of Hindu worship,Shanmathas.

Adityahruthaya sloka was taught to Lord Ram by Sage Agastya to help Ram to win the war against Ravana.

Suryamandala Ashtakam is not well-known.

But they are very effective, especially when one is depressed.

It grants the power to tide over crises.

Surya Mandala Ashtkam.
