Monolithic temple of Masrur (Himachal)

It is a monolithic temple complex, situated in the Kangra District of Himachal, India. Our timing to visit it was perfect, just as the sun’s first rays kissed the top of the structure. While the exact origin of the structure is not definite, it has depictions of gods and goddesses  and symbolic engravings as diverse as Hindu to the Buddhist. Just like the other fort at Nurpur, this structure too houses a school near its compound, but is very well maintained, maybe because of its height and location.
