Masroor is a Jewel, yet one of the least visited temples in India. Sculpted out of a rock and cave complex in a remote area of the Kangra valley, it has the only surviving rock shrines in the north. This stunning 7th century monolithic structure has 15 ornamented temples carved out freestanding rock. The temple roof provides views of the distance Himalayas. The shrine has images of Rama, Lakshmana and Sita and Shiva. Nominated as a potential World Heritage Site, Masroor is less than two hours drive from Basunti. A visit to Masroor can be combined with a visit to Nagrota Surian.
