MASARH

A very remarkable and unique feature of the village is a Jain temple of Parasnath, which also accommodates Lord Shiva in his linga roopa. The villagers think that the Jain temple was allowed to be constructed only on the condition that a Shiva lingam is enshrined within. The Jain temple is about sixty feet high and is rectangular in shape. It is located by the side of a big tank in an area of about three bighas of land. There is an open platform with six round pillars about seven feet high and four feet in diameter supporting a roof.

The pillars are well executed and have got some carvings near the top. After the courtyard there is a pradakshina path, which leads to a door facing the north, which leads again to the room of the main shrine of Parasnath. The room where the deity is enshrined is rectangular and the image of Parasnath is in a sitting posture. The image is in black stone and is well- polished. It is about four feet high.
