ADITYA-L1 is the first Indian mission that is dedicated to study solar atmosphere with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution. The satellite will carry seven payloads and is expected to be launched in 2023 by PSLV-XL from Sriharikota. In this presentation I will give an overview on the different payloads,  with status update on the mission. Sun is a variable star and I will highlight how Aditya L1 mission can play a role in the understanding of  this variability of different time scales.
