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.

My first stop was Brahma Temple, dedicated to Lord Brahma. It is one of the few such temples in the world as a result of a curse by Brahma’s consort, Saraswati. every year, thousand of devotees come here to pay homage to the gods that reside in this temple town. There is lord Shiva temple too inside the temple.
