A faulty and disgraceful renovation
Jan 2019 • Solo
The existence of ‘Surang Tila’ lacks the archeological sanctity. No dating results are available to justify the originality of the ‘Surang Tila’. For me ASI should have written about their shabby work to glorify the our heritage in a poor light. Unlike most of the construction used red brick stones for many temples, viharas and other facilities the Surang tila was made for Lime Bricks and does not seems to be indicative of our past heritage. But one must visit the site to understand when science and technology clashes with mythology. Get to the top atleast to have a first hand experience. Most tourist visit the site as it is very near to the roadside. Even not graceful with the endeavors.

Historical Place
Mar 2018
Visited this place with my family.
Very small temple but beautiful structure completely made by Rocks.
From a distance, The stair taking up to top looks like a Wave which is quite amazing.
This temple is basically Shiva Temple. It was found in the year 2006.
The real value of visiting this place is, if you are having a Guide who can explain the history behind this temple.

Visit only if you love history
Jun 2017 • Family
Do not visit the town for a picnic, you'll get bored. If you love history, there are many places to see especially the Buddhist sites. The pillars are made from the rocks from the river bed and they do contain the fossils of some species. Avoid summers.

Excellent place to be for history lovers.
There are lots of scope for the government to focus on tourism. Really sad to see the state of the place. Government should invest more to maintain these places.

Amazing architecture
Sep 2017 • Family
Surang Tila was built more than thirteen centuries ago. It is located at Sirpur which is known as the ancient temple town in Chhattisgarh. It is an amazing architecture of ancient times. The steps near the ground are in a sea wave like shape.

An Intriguing Ancient Site
Aug 2017
Surang Tila is one of the recent excavations at Sirpur, the ancient temple town in Chhattisgarh. The main attraction is a longish staircase in which some steps near the ground are in a wave like shape. When and how this happened is not clear. My regret is that this ancient site has been tinkered with and has lost its original charm.

Built in the 7th century but excavated only very recently
Nov 2016 • Family
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Surang Tila Temple is situated on the banks of the River Mahanadi in the historical town of Sirpur and excavated by the archaeological department only recently.

It's quite an amazing architecture considering it was built more than 13 centuries ago and withstood an earthquake as well. Will be liked by people who are fond of ancient architecture and history.

There are hardly any restaurants near by and it would be best to carry enough food and water with you when u visit this place to be on safer side. There are many more historical places around and a wild life sanctuary near by.

Ancient feelings.
Jan 2017
Saurabh Tila is place where you can feel about ancient things. Have a guide to know all ancient information , main drawback about surang tila place is that all guides done have proper n accurate knowledge about sirpur and its history. If u wanna enjoy the place than before going have some sort of research. I think govt should work more on this.
