Magru Mahadev temple is in Chhattri village of Thunag tehsil in Mandi Distric and is one of the excellent wooden temples in Mandi Himachal Pradesh  region. 

From Shimla:- Magaru Mahadev Temple at Chhatri village, is known for its famous marvellous woodcarvings. The Chhatri village is situated at a distance of 50 Kilometres from Karsog valley and 160 kilometres from Shimla.The architecture of this temple is a combination of pagoda and mandap style. The sanctum sanctorum is not perfect square but it is oblong in shape. Walls of sanctum are constructed in Kath-Kuni masonry. This portion rises in three tiered pagoda.

There are two circumambulatory paths of varied width surrounds the sanctum. Gabled roof portion covers the both circumambulatory paths and mandap. The topmost roof of pagoda, which is of conical shape, is covered with Plain Galvanised Iron sheets over four layers of wooden planks. The middle tier is covered with slates over three layers of planks. The lowermost roof, which forms a gable end in front, is covered with slates over two layers of wooden planks .The most interesting part of this temple is the elaborate and gracefully stylised woodcarving in the mandap. Every inch of the exposed wooden part in the mandap is minutely and richly carved, and not a single figure, zoomorphic or anthropomorphic is static or frozen, but brimming with activity. Even the serpents, with their zigzag formation appear to be in swift peristaltic motion. So are the elephants and horses high-spirited. The wood carver has very successfully executed numerous episodes and themes drawn from the Indian Epics, the Ramayana, and Mahabharata. The treatment of the battle themes is particularly interesting. It is very forceful and captivating. The ceiling over the mandap has very ingeniously been made dome-shaped. It is very richly carved with the dancing human figures, regimented along the rim of the dome, succeeded the bands of creepers, floral devices, etc.
