The name 'Masarh' has a long background connected with many legends of both Hinduism and Jainism. According to one legend, it was the seat of Banasura, the father-in-law of Anirudha, the grand son of Lord Sri Krishna. Its original name was Malla Sanrh thereby connotes that it was a stadium where wrestlers fought with bulls and practised martial arts, King Banasura said to have built this stadium and used n for wrestling bouts both with men and beasts like bulls. Another legend confirms that there were two villages called Karusha and Malad which in course of time turned into Karisat and Masarh. Bout are lying at close distance with each other. Third legend attributes it to Sonitpur, the seat of Aniruddha, Sri Krishna's grandson who ruled from here. According to Jains, it was the old Padmavathipura under the jurisdiction of Jain king called Vimaladitya, who changed the name to Mahasara standing for large lake existing then arid even today. Whatever may be the origin, it establishes beyond doubt that it was divine place redolent of past glory. Inscriptions give elaborate accounts of their past. Among the Hindu temples Sivaalayas prediminate over others. And it is amazing to see that a Jain temple extant is enshrining a Sivalinga and receivving worship. Ah! marvelous would it not proclaim that coexistence alone ushers bliss! A monumental proof of the people living there!!!.
