Prashar Rishi Temple and Lake
Prashar Lake lies ~70 km south of Kullu, with a three storied pagoda-like temple dedicated to the sage Prashar. The Lake is located at a height of 2730 m above sea level. With deep blue waters, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. An interesting thing about Parashar Lake is its floating circular island, that keeps changing its position through-out the year. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks, the lake can be approached via a motorable link-road from Bajaura near Buntar.
The temple was built in the thirteenth century and the Lake is said to be unclear how deep it is, with a diver not being able to determine its depth.
