In Indian mythology, the snake god, Nag devata, got into battle with King Bhagsu, who had stolen water from the sacred Nagdal Lake. King Bhagsu was defeated and eventually forgiven, and the site was consecrated as Bhagsu Nag. The Shiva temple has a bell at the entrance which has been constructed with white tiles and it has a marble step that leads to the temple. There is a rare Pancha Mukha Shivling inside the temple and a small white Nandi statue at the entrance. The temple is surrounded by two lovely pools which are believed to be sacred and are considered to contain miraculous powers of healing.

A road that leads to the Bhagsu Temple is lined with shops selling colorful things like wind chimes, dream catchers, hippie clothes and much more. The temple is accessible by road, and it leads to Bhagsu waterfall and further to Triund.

September is the best time to visit this place as an annual fair takes place that attracts a lot of tourists from across the region.
