Nagbal Temple

Nagbal Temple is a shrine on the left side of the holy spring at Nagbal in Anantnag District of Jammu and Kashmir. Located in the eastern corner of the Anantnag town, this temple is adjacent to a tank. There are long shady chinnars which stand guard round the tank. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Ananta Bhagvan, installed at the outlet of the spring.

This temple was erected during the reign of Maharaja Rambir Singh, the second Dogra ruler of Kashmir. There are other small temples in the Nagbal complex. Shivaji temple, the oldest temple, was built during the reign of Maharaja Partap Singh. Another attraction here is a Gurdwara. A sulphur spring, which is considered to have spiritual powers, is nearby.
