फलाबारा

It is famous for its ancient Lord Shiva temple that is known as a “Adhaishwar Mandir”. Long time before a cow dropped her milk on shiva-ling and this was very surprising for villagers. They saw this incident on a daily basis and after then all nearby villages [chokla] decided to built a temple. At first Sant Rajender Prasad took care of this temple and made a Gau-Shala for cows.
