What is the locus of a surface when r coordinate and theta(θ) coordinate is constant in Spherical coordinate system?

We know that, r=constant is a sphere having radius r and theta(θ)=constant is a conical curved surface.

So the intersection of these two planes is a circle i.e. a line along the phi (φ) as shown in the figure.
