Barsoor: Chhattisgarh

Once home of nearly 147 temples and numerous ponds, Barsoor is a sleepy little town on the bank of Indravati River and some 95 km away from Jagdalpur (Via Geedam). Unlike Sirpur, Dating back to 10th and 11th centuries, Ruins of these temples are of no artistic wonders thus do not lure much tourists however the countryside filled with fields of rice and vegetables which makes it all green. Environs are lovely with natural ponds and undulating tract of low rising hills. 50 feet high, Mama-Bhanja-ka-Mandir (Temple of the maternal uncle and nephew) is the prime temple of archeological importance.
