Located en route to Sonamarg, Narayan-Nag has an interesting history to it. Legend has it that the Hindu deity Vishnu created this magical place for the Pandavas who had been exiled by their cousins, the Kuravas. Narayan Nag when translated means "Gods' Own Spring". Truly, the place has natural springs scattered all over it. What amazed me were the ruins which in no uncertain terms must have had a splendid grandeur in their times. I could make out large rooms, a temple and even some huge bathtubs made up of stone which looked more like mini swimming pools to me. I fail to understand how such elaborate construction could have been carried out in this pristine, untouched place.
