Masrur (Masroor), Himachal Pradesh

Masrur (Masroor)

Masrur is located at a distance of 32 kilometers from Kangra district and 47 kilometers from Dharamsala. This place is well known for cave temples that have been constructed by cutting the rocks. The temples of Masrur have a sharp resemblance with the caves that exist in Ajanta and Ellora. Centre of attraction of this place are the marvelous idols of Lord Ram, his wife Goddess Sita and Lakshmana. The presence of the idol of Mahadev in the centre of the lintel makes one believe that the presiding deity of this temple was Lord Shiva. Tourists are supposed to maintain a distance from the idols of this cave temple as they are not in a very good condition and need preservation. These cave temples serve as the only existing rock shrines in the northern part of India. These shrines are enclosed by an artificial lake and sculpted lawn.
