Situated right by the beautiful Karua Jheel, Baba Dhansar is a holy Hindu shrine located near Karua village in Resai district of Jammu and Kashmir. The local legend has it that Baba Dhansar was the son of Vasudeva, the serpent king who helped the villagers in getting rid of a demon who lived near this pond and created havoc and destruction in their lives. When the villagers asked for help from Baba, he prayed to Lord Shiva, who in turn agreed to help him kill the demon. After the demon was killed, the villagers constructed a Nag temple and a Shiva temple in honour of the Gods.
Some interesting facts about the place:
The Karua Jheel is considered sacred and therefore bathing is not allowed here.
