There is no dearth of mystical and ancient temples in our country India. One such temple is in Rajasthan, where people run away as soon as dusk falls. Nobody wants to stay in this temple even at night. The reason behind this is said, it is quite interesting. People believe that whatever stops in this temple at night becomes stone.



Located in the Barmer district of Rajasthan, this temple is known as the Kiradu temple. Please tell that this temple is also called Khajuraho of Rajasthan. Built in the South Indian style, this temple is famous worldwide for its architecture. It is said that the name of this place was 'Kirat Kup' in 1161 BCE.


Kiradu is a series of five temples, of which the Vishnu temple and the Shiva temple (Someshwar temple) are in slightly better condition, while the rest of the temples have been turned into ruins. No one knows who built these temples, but by looking at the design of the temples, it is estimated that they may have been built during the time of the Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty, Sangam dynasty, or Gupta dynasty of the south.

The belief about the Kiradu temple is that many years ago a Siddha monk came with some of his disciples. One day he left his disciples there and went for a tour somewhere. Meanwhile, a student's health deteriorated. The rest of the disciples then sought help from the villagers, but none helped them. Later, when the Siddha Sadhus came there, they came to know all the things. On this, he became angry and cursed the villagers that after sunset, all the people should become stone.

At the same time, there is also a belief that a woman had helped the monk's disciples, so the monk asked the woman to leave the village before dusk and not look back, but the woman did not listen and looked back. After that, she became stone. A statue of the woman is also installed at a short distance from the temple.
