The Narang Temples and The Insane Drive To Get There

Naranag is a tourist village located in the Ganderbal district of Jammu and Kashmir. The Village meets the the Sind River is has insane scenic meadow and is know for it Mount Hamarmukh trekking site. 

I wanted to visit Narnag to see its historical temples. It’s one of the most important archeological sites in India, which historians say is dedicated to Lord Shiva from Lalithdatiya Muktadiya, an 8th century ruler. The temple still stands with visible Aryan structure. 

The drive to Naranag from Srinagar was a site itself. I stopped at spots along the way because the scenic views made me feel like I was in another world.

If you want to visit Naranag, I suggest getting a tourist car familiar with the route or hopping on a bus. You can tent out in the area and stay for a few days, and go trekking up the mountains once the route is open in the late summer.
