Baba Thakur is a temple dedicated to Lord Krishana. "Thakur" is another name of Lord Krishana. There is a belief that this temple was founded by the people ("kaksh" gotra) about 150 years earlier than the village was established. But this belief may not be entirely correct as there is exact proof for when the temple was established.

Design

There was an old temple building on the site but in 1997 the villagers began the renovation of this temple. It took two years work and a total expenditure of less than 50 rupees for the magnificent Baba Thakur Ji temple to take its present form.
