Short essay on A Visit to a Historical Place

Short essay on A Visit to a Historical Place

One day our teacher told us about some historical places. We were very happy to know about them. As a result we decided to visit the Bhojpur temple, the historical place in Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh.

We started early in the morning and reached Bhojpur by our school bus at 10 o’clock. Bhojpur is a beautiful small village surrounded by rocky hills. The river Betwa flows nearby. The temple of Lord Shiva stands on a small hill near the river. It the glorious part of our history. It has a big gate. The priest told us that the temple was built by Raja Bhoj. The structure is built with huge finely cut rocks kept one over the other.

How could they have put such large rocks one over the other? It is amazing to look at the fine example of ancient architecture and sculpture. There is a huge ‘Shivalinga’ in the temple built on an equally large platform. It is one of the largest in the world. It fills the whole interior of the temple. The monument has rightly been adopted by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

We enjoyed our lunch in a garden near the temple. We also took some photographs there. We returned home in the evening. It was a pleasant tour which introduced us to the golden period of the history of Madhya Pradesh.
