History and specialty of Malpur Mahadev Temple


For more than the last six centuries, the temple of Mahadev is still standing in Malpur as it is. There are many artistic idols around this temple, in which some work is inspired by art.

This temple is made without the use of lime, that means only stones have been used to make it. The stones have been carved and set, perhaps because of this it has stood firm for more than 600 years.

The old fort here is located near the temple, which is now almost completely destroyed. Once upon a time, there used to be a lot of activity in this fort, but now there is nothing except broken stones.

Vikram Singh Lunawat has given complete information about Bholenath's temple and this citadel. Once upon a time Malpur was ruled by his ancestors only. He gave us a tour of the fort as well as told us about some of its unheard aspects.

According to them, the construction of this temple and the citadel was done by Thakurani sa Deori ji. After him it was taken care of by his descendants, which continues till date.

Bayan Mata Ji's temple is also present in the premises of the fort. Bayan Mataji is their family deity, who was worshiped by the rulers here and their descendants are following this tradition even today.
