Who is the sun god? That varies by religion and tradition. In ancient cultureswhere you find deities with specialized functions, you'll probably find a sun god or goddess, or several within the same religious tradition.

In Hindu traditions, the sun god Surya travels across the sky in a chariot pulled by either seven horses or a single seven-headed horse.
The chariot driver is Aruna, the personification of dawn. In Hindu mythology, they fight the demons of darkness. There may be more than one god of the sun.
