Masrur Rock Temple

Masrur Rock Temple is a monolithic rock temple, situated at Masrur, in Himachal Pradesh. There are 15 exquisitely carved rock temples built in Shikara style, which resembles the Kailashnath Temple at Ellora and cave temples of Mahabalipuram.

In the center of the temple complex stands the most elaborately carved shrine, the Thakurdwara, enshrining the black stone images of Lord Ram, Lakshman and Sita. A well maintained and sculpted lawn and an artificial lake that flanks the temple adds the charm.

The temple is 15 km south of Kangra. Masrur Rock Temple can be easily accessed by bus from Kangra and Dharamsala (40 km).
