Baruasagar named after a large lake called Baruasagar Tal. This lake was created about 260 years ago when Raja Udit Singh of Orcha erected and embankment. A fort was built by him. The ruins of two old Chandela Temples, made of granite, are on the north-east of the lake. The older one is called Ghughua Math. Nearby is the later Gupta period temple called Jarai-Ka-Math. This is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati.
