Dating back to the 8th century, Masroor Rock Cut Temple is a historic site and a nationally protected property. Masroor lies 32 kilometres from Kangra on Nagrota Surian link road. The group of temples is well known for its unique contribution to rock cut architecture of India since it was found by the Archaelogical Survey of India in 1875.
What survives today still represents unmatchable architecture and sculpture of high aesthetic value. Research reveals the site was a precursor to the famous Angkor Wat World Heritage site in Cambodia. The group of temples is a testimony to the rock-cut architectural knowledge of ancient India.
