Once upon a time in Indian mythology, there was a big battle between the snake god, Nag devata, and King Bhagsu. The king had taken water from a special lake called Nagdal Lake, which made the snake god very angry. But in the end, King Bhagsu was defeated and then forgiven by the snake god. The place where this all happened was named Bhagsu Nag.

At the entrance of the Shiva temple in Bhagsu Nag, there is a bell made of white tiles and a marble step that leads inside. Once you’re in the temple, you’ll see a special five-faced Shivling and a small white statue of Nandi, the bull. The temple is surrounded by two pretty pools that are said to have magical healing powers.

So, if you ever visit Bhagsu Nag, make sure to check out the temple and maybe even take a dip in the sacred pools for good luck!

When you walk down the road to Bhagsu Temple, you’ll pass by a bunch of cool shops selling all sorts of fun stuff like wind chimes, dream catchers, and super trendy hippie clothes. The temple is easy to get to by road, and from there you can check out the awesome Bhagsu waterfall and even keep going to Triund for more adventures!

September is the coolest time to check out this spot because they throw a big fair every year that brings in tons of people from all over. The temple is always packed with folks having a blast and celebrating. Locals say that Radhasthmi is the absolute best time to come visit this temple.
