When  we talk of the diameter of the Sun, we are  referring-to  the diameter of  the photosphere. The temperature of  the photosphere is about 6000°C. The  innermost layer of  the Sun is its core where its energy is produced through nuclear reactions. There are other layers between  the core and the photosphere which we will not describe here.
