Shiv Temple Kanker


Shiva Temple: At one end of the Sonai Rupai pond are ancient Shiva temples. The oldest idol of historical importance is kept in that temple. On the occasion of Shivaratri, the first president of Nagar Palika Parishad Kanker, Pt. Vishnu Prasad Sharma, started the fair from 1952. Since then till today, a huge fair has been held on the hill on the occasion of every Shivaratri.

The Shiva temple situated on the mountain is also present here before the fort was built. Its history is believed to be at least thousand years old. The temple also has ancient statues of other gods including Surya. Every year since 1955, a fair is being held on the mountain on Mahashivratri.
