Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Stop at Khir Bhawani Temple, built on a spring that symbolizes the goddess of its namesake (folklore maintains that the waters turn black if the region is to suffer any disasters). Kashmiri Brahmans gather here in May or June for an annual festival. Otherwise, it remains pleasantly untouristed. Soak up the peaceful atmosphere at the ancient place of worship surrounded by lush chinar trees. You can eat inexpensively on site.
