Here is a small document about the Sarada Devi Temple in Kashmir and how it was destroyed by Muslim Fanatics. These instances must be kept in mind so that we Hindus do not forget the atrocities that our Motherland took on itself for the past 1000 years!

The ancient temple of Sree Sharada Devi is in Pak occupied Kashmir (PoK). Noinformation is available about this temple and the Hindu youth is not aware of it.The temple is so ancient that Kashmir was earlier known as 'Sharada Peeth'. PoKis an integral part of India and we have to get it back from Pakistan. Hindus willunderstand the significance of getting back PoK once they know the history aboutSree Sharada Devi temple. The temple is at a height of 11000 from the sea leveland is about 70 miles from Shrinagar. The length of the temple is 142 feet andwidth is 94.6 feet. The outer walls of the temple are 6 ft. wide and 11 ft long. Andthere are arches with 8 ft. height. It is a very good example of architecture.Historical proof of old Sharada Devi temple.
