MASARH

There is a religious trust, known as Manilal Trust, which looks after the temple. The daily offerings are coloured yellow arwa rice,kamalgatta, keshar, flowers and water. The annual puja takes place in the month of Shravana when hundreds of Jains visit and do bandana at the temple.

The Shiva temple facing east is in the same building. There is a dome on the top of the temple. The lingam, is enshrined in a dark and unventilated room measuring 16' X 12'. On the eve of Shivaratri and in the month of Shravana, the deity is worshipped with great pomp and hundreds of pilgrims congregate. In the Shravana month the deity is offered leaves and flowers of akwan plant, dhatura, flowers of kanail, etc.

Opposite the Shiva temple there is a Devi temple. It has been recently constructed but the deity is ancient. The image of thegoddess was enshrined by the ancestor of a family of this village, which has now shifted to Udwantnagar. Although commonlysaid to be a Devi image, the foot of the image rests on a peacock. The priests would not allow a further investigation as to whether the image is of a female deity Devi Saraswati or of Kartikeya.
