The temples located here are located at a distance of about 200 meters facing each other. These groups of temples are divided into two parts. Both parts were dedicated to Lord Shiva, but it is said that only one has the idol of Lord Shiva and the other is Lord Bhairav. According to historians, these temples dedicated to Shiva were built by Kashmir-King Lalitaditya in the 8th century.

The temple of Naranag, the first part of the temple has been closed due to some reason, but in the second part there is still a Shivalinga carved in stone on the left side of the main temple which is idolized.

The rest of the temple clusters are completely destroyed, but the remains scattered around tell the story of its grand and glorious past. In front of the temple there is a stone reservoir made of stone, which may have been used in religious purposes.

The temple of Naranag also houses an ancient tank in the northwest part of the temple. Beautiful artefacts will have been made on its walls made of stones, whose little glimpse is seen even today. As you all know that Kashmir has a rich tradition.
