Brahma Temple

A temple situated on the banks of the beautiful Khajur River, there are still no evidences as to when this temple was built. The temple is at present almost in ruins but whatever little is left of it looks awesome till date. The hude idols and temple designs are an evidence of very early styles of temple art and designing. There is no mandap here and there are no evidences if there were any earlier on. Apart from the idol of Lord Brahma there are also a number of idols of Lord Shiva. This contradiction in the name and number majority of idols often leaves tpurists and even historians in a great confusion. The confusion is that whether this temple was actually a Brahma Temple or was it a Shiva Temple with an idol of Lord Brahma established inside it.
Amrit Kochar
Walking around the Brahma temple, I met a woman sitting beside a lake at sunset with tears rolling down her face. Mustering the courage to talk to her, I said Namaste. As we talked for nearly 30 minutes, I learned that she recently lost her husband to cancer and now comes often to sit beside the lake where their love story had begun. It was here that they had met for the first time nearly thirty years ago and it was still the most treasured place for her.
