Baba Dhansar is a place of religious importance in the Jammu region, renowned for the age old Shiva temple. The mythical spirituality associated with the region makes it a must visit spot for the God Lovers pursuing to seek some divine experience. In a visit of 4 to 5 hours, the spot can be explored though not entirely but sufficient to one’s satisfaction.
Being one of the most wonderful temples, the shrine blesses the visitors with its divine ambience. It is believed that when Lord Shiva went to Amarnath to reveal his powers of immortality to Goddess Parvati, he left his serpent king Sheshnag at Anantnag. Sheshnag later took human form as Vasudev and bore a son named Dhansar, who turned to be a saintly person. Since then the place is named after this son of Sheshnag as Baba Dhansar. The place has an exorbitant natural beauty that attracts a lot of tourists.
The major attraction of Dhansar, however, is the spouting springs which emerge from the rocks and soon disappears into the adjacent forest, later re-emerging as a number of small waterfalls. The astonishing sight of these waterfalls flowing into the valley is a treat for nature lovers.
