Masrur Rock Cut Temple, Dharamshala Reviews
Beautiful monolithic ruins of Ram temple. The ruins are a great treat to the eyes. It is said that the Pandavas carved it out with a monolithic stone when they were in exile here for 6 months. An earthquake in 1905 has brought this down to ruins. A great archeological place to visit.
Good for ancient temple hunters.. Its very amazing by seeing a whole temple build a huge insitu block of semi friable-bedded sandstone. Few top most designes of temples slides down due to fissile nature of the friable sandstone. Its very thrilling to enter in the cave like stairs of temple.
The place has extensively got damaged post the earthquake sometime in early 1900..but still it's really beautiful and very clean. The place is serene and the hall / temple is still intact. A must visit place if you are a history lover and can appreciate it..no major market nearby..advisable is to carry own food and ..
Its a must visit if you are in Dharamshala.. it is an amazing work of art and important part.. kept me wondering how would they build such places with limited resources.. unfortunately not very popular or commercial tourist spot though.
Masrur Rock cut temple. is an amazing monolith. A complete temple complex carved out of a huge rock. It has an amazing view in front. ASI is maintaining this temple. A small pond in front of the temple adds to the attraction. Roads till the temple is all good. There is ample parking for your vehicles.
