Must visit place, waters, nature, mountains all around. Small cave having a Aap Shambu shivling. One need to crawl 3 to 4 feet n reach shivling. Mind blowing experience. Cool breeze, sound of water passing by. Can’t afford to miss it.

Best and a must place to visit if you are visiting dharmshala the temple and the river both are as closed as both eyes. Peaceful place no crowd enjoy the nature. Good if you have your vehicle to reach there.

this is a very underrated temple and not on the usual tourist list - but defintely worth a visit. the path down to stream at the base of the temple is a bit tricky but well worth it. the water is ice cold and lovely.
