The Matha Kuar shrine has a statue of Buddha dating back to the 10th century. This 3 m high statue is said to have been built of a single stone. The statue at the temple depicts Lord Buddha in a Bhumi Sparsh Mudra. It also shows Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree, which symbolically represents ‘the Enlightenment of Buddha'.
The statue also bears an inscription that is largely illegible, but surely indicates the date of its construction to 10th or 11th century.It is also believed that the Buddha delivered his last sermon at this place.
