Madhya Pradesh : Ruins of a Shiva temple and 10 other temples belonging to the Parmar era have been located in Samasgarh, some 22 km from here. Culture Minister Laxmikant Sharma has directed officials to ensure the maintenance of these remains.

Shambles of almost one dozen temples have been located, in which symbols of Shiva temples, Vishnu temples and other temples could be easily identified at the location where the remains of Jain temples were discovered earlier.

Culture Minister Laxmikant Sharma has directed officials to take action for the conservation of these temples.

A survey team traced all these ruins in the leadership of Commissioner Archeology Ashok Shah on the day.

The ruins suggest that these temples would be of the Parmara-era that may have been destroyed by some reason. At a place, a jalahari and Shivling in the ruins of a rectangular temple were located.

In surveys performed earlier, only marks of Jain temples were located, which are exhibited at the Birla Museum and State Museum, here.

Historians believe that areas around the State capital were ruled by the Parmara King Bhoj and these ruins would definitely have been under his protection. Apart from Hindu, temples, ruins of Jain temples could also be easily identified.

Shah said the department was working on the plan to maintain these temples. He also informed Divisional Commissioner Manoj Shrivastava about the discovery over phone. The survey team included Vedprakash Nagayach, Deputy-Director Excavation OP Mishra, Archeologist Nagendra Verma and some photographers.
