Vasuki Nag Temple is one of the oldest temples located in Bhaderwah. The history of this temple dates back to the 11th century. The name Vasuki comes from a word in Sanskrit which means serpent. Vasuki, according to the Hindu mythology, is the King of 'nagas' or snakes and has a Nagmani or gem on his head.
The temple enshrines an ancient statue of Vasuki Nag which has been carved out of a single stone. A special prayer is organised here annually just before the beginning of the Kailash Yatra, a holy pilgrimage of the Hindus.
