MASARAH - SIVA TEMPLE

At present, only Buddhist relics, Jain Mandirs and same Hindu temples are strewn over the entire area. As Banasura was a great Siva Bhakta, Saivism enjoyed its full sway during his days and later too. When Jain influence established rule over this land, it started erecting many mandirs. But the locals, being staunch Saivates raised hue and cry and succeeded in installing Sivalingas in many Jain Mandirs. A great achievement indeed. There is a Sivalinga now in the Parasnath Jain temple receiving worship according to Saivagamas. It is facing east and temple has an excellent dome on the top. Periodical festivals are celebrated with great fervor. In Sravana masas, special pujas are offered. All the Saivate gods like Ganesha, Karthikeya, Nandi are fittingly installed for worship. It also contains Devi temple just opposite, housing the icons of Saraswati, Vishnu etc.
