Traveler & photographer with a passion for everything
Though Indian temples had always enticed me, the Masroor Temple in Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh left me gaping.
I rediscovered such a majestic temple in Himachal Pradesh, thanks to one of my friends, who recommended me to visit this temple.
Wow ! This was my instant reaction when I entered the temple, which I had never seen in my life. A pure and whole-some rock structure.
Situated near Lunj in Kangra, this temple is yet to be popular among tourists.
Known for its monolithic temples, the main shrine of the temples contains three stone images of Lord Ram, his brother Lakshman and wife Sita.
You will find a group of 15 shrines (Monolith Rock temple) built in the Indo-aryan style of architecture.
The temple is said to be built by the Pandavas during their exile period in the eighth century. Also known as the ‘Ajanta Ellora of Himachal Pradesh’, Musroor Temple is the only rock-cut temple in north India.
According to historians, this temple is one of the three of its kind in the country – two being very famous Ajanta cave in Maharashtra and Mammallapuran in Tamil Nadu.
When I landed there, I found no one except few temple management persons.
Situated on a hill, the temple complex has a huge rectangular water pond.
I spent nearly 30 minutes there and spirituality beckoned me. I felt calmness exist everywhere.
This is a temple which must be visited by every temple lover.
There is no direct bus to the place. It will be better if you hire a taxi from Lunj, which is 40 kilometers from Kangra.
So go and explore this beautiful place and do not forget to share your experience with me once you come back.
