Manasbal Temple is an ancient shrine located on the Jhelum Valley, in Srinagar District of Jammu and Kashmir. It is partially submerged in the Manasbal Lake during the greater part of the year.

This delightful temple is roofed like quadrangular prism. It has two pyramidal roofs. A molding at the corner between the ceiling and the top of a wall, and the horizontal band are adorned with series of dentils. The entrance of the temple faces towards the west.

The Shakful Canal and the ruins of a terraced Mughal Garden are the nearby attractions.
