On the Circular road, when we take a by lane to reach Phir Kho, lies the Parameshvari temple. Being a shiva temple,it got its name after the area known as Parameshvari Dakki.
The temple seems to be belonging to remote antiquity as:
– As the remnants of the old temple structure/wall are made of stone.
-use of motifs used for decoration on the front of wall appears quite intriguing.
Within the grabha griha is small Shivalinga which is still being worshipped but the temple itself has lost its significance. Local community does not appear to be acquainted with its antiquity.Probably due to presence of Aap shambhu temple in its vicinity has led to it being relegated into insignificance.
Within its percinct two dehris are also housed.
This piece of architectural heritage needs to be worked upon.
