Why to visit Bhagsunag Temple

The Bhagsunag Temple, located approximately 3 kilometres from Mcleodganj and surrounded by gorgeous ponds and lush foliage, is one of the oldest ancient temples. The local Gorkha and Hindu communities respect Bhagsunath Temple, which is also known as Bhagsunath Temple. The two waters that surround the temple are thought to be sacred and to hold magical healing properties.

The Dal Lake and the Kotwali Bazaar are both within walking distance of the magnificent temple. In fact, because the Bhagsunath Temple is located on the way to the famous Bhagsu Waterfalls, travellers make it a point to visit the temple and seek the Almighty's blessings before continuing on their journey.

Nag Devta, or the Snake God, was angered when King Bhagsu attempted to steal water from the sacred Nag Dal Lake in Mcleodganj, according to mythology. Later, King Bhagsu repented of his wrongdoings and erected the temple to ask the Snake God for forgiveness. As a result, the Bhagsunath Temple is dedicated to the Nag Devta.
