HIGHLIGHTS

Pilgrimage centres of devta: Markandey srowar, Sardi, Beas tat , Thras, Mahoi-Tada.
Old wooden temple. Straight rath with 8 Mohras. Once before going to Thrass the devta said that if he is true the doors of Thrass temple will open automatically. It happened likewise. The devta repeatedly warns that the society’s morality will end if people fail to follow the counsel of gods.
