Ancient Lord Krishna Temple, Naggar, Himachal Pradesh

This is an ancient Lord Krishna temple from the intricacies of the carvings and architectural design.

It is believed that Pandavas of Mahabharata had lived here.

This temple is located at Thava in Naggar on a mountain and is accessible by walking through the mountain or by car on off beat roads around the mountains that are all stones and no tar roads.

The temple is built so high up in the mountain road with so much details and can be considered a heritage site.

This temple carvings does have similarities with the Gauri Shankar temple at Naggar on the other side of the mountain.

Lord Krishna statue is about 5,000 years old and Devi Radha statue was about 500 years old. The orange fruit tree is believed to be in remembrance of Arjuna. Where Lord Krishna is, Arjuna will be there.

I met a traditional elderly Pundit and he was describing the place related to Mahabharata.

Best place for meditation. There were not much of tourists at the time I arrived at this temple except another family whom graciously translated the Pundit's explanation of this ancient temple.
