The sage Parashara is honoured in this temple, where it is also thought that he spent a significant amount of time in meditation.


One Deodar tree is said to have been used in the construction of the Prashar Rishi temple nearby.  The temple's captivating "Himachali" architecture melds seamlessly with the surroundings.


The elevation of Parashar Lake is 2730 metres above sea level. Away from the commotion of the city, the lake is the ideal getaway location.


The tall cedar trees are tucked in between Parashar Lake. Visitors can see a sight of snow-capped mountains and the Sutlej River's water streams moving south from the lake's edge.

When the Mahabharata was over, the Pandavas travelled with Dev Kamrunag to locate a suitable location for their god. They arrived where the lake is now when they landed.


The deity and Dev Kamrunag were spellbound by the location's beauty and made the decision to reside there for the rest of their life when they first arrived.

The lake's oval shape has a specific explanation. Legend has it that at Dev Kamrunag's request (based on whom this entire valley is known by the name of Kamru Valley today),

One of the Pandavas named Bheem pushed his forearm and elbow into the mountain's summit to create an oval lake.

In the midst of lush meadows and enormous mountains, Parashar Lake appears to be a blue emerald. The lake's surroundings are a unique sight that can enchant any visitor's mind and spirit.
