Masroor Rock Cut Temple, Himachal

''Also known as Himalayan pyramid, this temple was carved out of a single stone''

LOCATION : It is located in Kangra city of Himachal Pradesh. It is at a distance of about 40kms from the Kangra city.

THE TEMPLE

It is one of those untouched temples of Himachal Pradesh. Built in the 8th century, this monolithic rock cut temple comprises 15 temples cut out from a single rock. The main temple is dedicated to Lord Ram, Lakshman and Sita and is covered with intricate stone carvings. The temple complex overlooks the Beas valley and lends a fine view of the surrounding Dhauladhar range.
It is also believed that Pandavas resided here during their long exile from their kingdom. Built in Indo-Aryan style, the temple is partly in ruins now. The intact portion of the temple, however, is in a good shape and maintained well by the government. There’s a beautiful rectangular pond right in the front of the temple that is full of water throughout the year and is considered auspicious by devotees.

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Although Kangra can be visited throughout the year, the best time would be between March and October.
