The Naag (Cobra) Temple is considered to be extremely beautiful, and a must visit attraction of Patnitop. This temple is located on the top of a hill, surrounded by mountains on all the sides. It is mostly made of wood and is believed to be 600 years old. A belief goes that pilgrims should enter the temple only in daylight.
During the famous Naag Panchami festival, a huge number of tourists make their way to this temple to pray for happiness and prosperity. Pilgrims say that those visiting the temple never leave empty handed. Tourists willing to brave extreme chilly evenings can visit the temple during the winter season. Many avoid this season as the mountains, towards the later part of the day, at this time of the year are almost always shrouded in fog and visibility can go down to a minimum of a mere 10 ft.
