About Bhagsunath Temple

Bhagsunath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, located at Dharmashala about 3 km away from Mcleod Ganj. The temple is considered as one of the most sacred pilgrim centres for Hindus and Gorkha Community. The two pools here are very famous for their healing properties. There is an annual fair celebrated at the temple during the month of September, which is the best time to visit Bhagsunath Temple. Kotwali Bazaar, Dal Lake, and Bhagsu Fall are the other major attractions near to the holy shrine. The legend about the temple is that the Nag Devta raged in anger once as King Bhagsu stole water from Nag Dal Lake here. Later, King Bhagsu prayed for forgiveness of the Snake God and built this temple in reverence to the Nag Devta. Another legend is that the shrine is the patronage of Bhagsuwala (a specific Gorkha community). The two pools here are believed to be built with tiger-head spouts.
