Vasuki Nag Temple, Doda


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.
