Jhar

“Keen on seeing the ruins of an archaeologically significant Shiv Temple in the heart of India? Then this temple is a must visit.”

This Shiv Temple is located in Jhar which is about 12 km from the main city. The literal meaning of Jhar is ‘water spring’. The name Jhar has been given to this place because there is a Jharana on the site. Here you can see ruins of a Shiv temple of Bhumija style which is said to be from the 11th century A.D. The sculptures of this temple can be seen lying scattered around it. It is surely an intriguing sight.
