Abstract: Let $ X$ be an irreducible smooth projective algebraic curve of genus $ g \geq 2$ over the ground field $ \mathbb{C}$, and let $ G$ be a semisimple simply connected algebraic group. The aim of this paper is to introduce the notion of semistable and stable parahoric torsors under a certain Bruhat-Tits group scheme $ \mathcal G$ and to construct the moduli space of semistable parahoric $ \mathcal G$-torsors; we also identify the underlying topological space of this moduli space with certain spaces of homomorphisms of Fuchsian groups into a maximal compact subgroup of $ G$. The results give a generalization of the earlier results of Mehta and Seshadri on parabolic vector bundles.
