Pandava Temple / Thakur Dwar Temple– On the way back from Tikkar Taal towards Royal Hut Resort, we spotted a small temple in pink that looked somewhat different from a regular shrine. The strong curiosity it evoked made us park, with difficulty, some distance ahead. When we walked back, we were surprised that what we spotted was an ancient temple. There was a Krishna deity inside and we learnt that this 10th century temple was attributed to the Pandavas. To prop up the intricately carved stone structure, modern concrete structures have been erected around the original dome and the sanctum sanctorum. The pink paint on the cement structure was a lovely contrast to the light brown hue of the original temple. Legend has it, the Tikkar Taal Lake is the famous lake from Yaksha Prashna in Mahabharat and the temple is thus called Pandava Temple.
