Going by this dateline, the Varaha Moorti is over 2000 years old.There is a huge standing Moorti of Vishnu and a mandapa near the Varaha Moorti. Part foundation base and pillar remains of a grand temple including several remnants of Moortis at the site prove the flourishing of a culturally rich kingdom in this region.From this site there is an underground tunnel spread across several kms that opens to another site. This tunnel is now blocked. I and Yogaditya Singh Rawal experienced divine energy vibrations at this site. These are vibrations of the chanting of mantras, hymns, singing of bhajans, playing of musical instruments dedicated to the deities by priests and devotees hundreds of years ago.This temple site was plundered by Izlamic invaders/barbarians. Signs of desecration are visible all around here. – Manoshi Sinha.
