popular legends are to be believed, Nag Devta aka the Snake God had to bear the
outrage of King Bhagsu’s action when he dared to extort water flowing from the
very spiritual Nag Dal Lake situated in Mcleodganj. After a while, King Bhagsu
grieved his actions and created the temple in order to strive for some
compassion from Nag Devta. This temple, therefore, is constructed in the honor
of the Snake God.
A few other legends suggest that, it is a popular belief and a wide acceptance
that the very prestigious Bhagsunag Temple is an outcome of the peddling that
was given by a particular Gorkha community known as the Bhagsuwala, named after
the Holy God Bhagsunag. Moreover, people also believe that this community’s
