Discovery of Sheesh in Khatu :
After the Mahabharata battle, Barbarika’s head (Sheesh) was buried in the village ( Khatu ) in Sikar District . The location was obscured until well after the Kaliyuga period began. Then, on one time, milk started flowing suddenly out Shyam Baba Templeof a cow’s udder when she neared the burial spot. surprised at this incident, the local villagers dug the spot the buried head of Barbarik was discovered.
The head was handed over to a Brahmin who worshipped it for many days. Roopsingh Chauhan, king of that time of Khatu, then had a dream where he was motivated to build a temple and set up the head there. Afterward, a temple was built and the idol was installed on the 11th day of the Shukla Paksha (bright half) of the month of Kartik.

His wife, Narmada Kanwar, once had a dream in which the holy being instructed her to take his illustration out of the earth. The indicated place (now known as Shyam Kund) when then dug up. Sure enough, it yielded the idol, which was appropriately enshrined in the temple.

The original temple was built in 1027 AD by Roopsingh Chauhan and his wife Narmada Kanwar. In 1720 AD, a nobleman known as Diwan Abhaisingh renovated the old temple, at the behest of the then ruler of Marwar. The temple took its present shape at this time and the idol was enshrined in the sanctum sanctorum. The idol is made of rare stone. Khatushyam is the family deity of a large number of families.The temple is constructed of pure white Makrana marble and is an example of unique architecture.

"Good food & prices to fit every pocket"

I really enjoyed trying the different food at this Hotel Lakhdatar restaurant. I was impressed by their wide range – the serve also dishes specific for other regions, not only for Rajasthan. And if you would rather stick to what you know, you can also between some European dishes. My only observation is that a toilet near the terrace would be great, so that you wouldn’t have to go to your room.
