The Shiva Temple
The religious place gets visited a lot by many Hindu pilgrims and was built by the villagers back in 1961. The place has a great belief behind the idol which is placed here. Years back one of the citizens in the village found a stone in the Rangapahar Reserve Forest. He started sharpening his knife on the stone and found a kind of liquid flowing from the stone. Later he saw the same stone in his dream and came to the conclusion that the stone that he found was the powerful Lord Shiva. When the villagers came to know about the incident, they brought the stone and started worshipping it. Today this temple has the same stone which is considered now the Shiva Linga dedicating the temple to Lord Shiva.
