Great Impression

This small and beautiful place of worship is situated in the Naldehra Golf Course, and devoted to Karna The Lord Maha Nag, hence became Mahnug, as the Golf Course has surrounded the temple, so it leaves a great impression, and the devotees are always there though less in numbers. This temple was built by King Shyam Sen, Who was a believer of Karna, in 1664, an annual fest on Makarsankratri is organized, and on Sunday many locals and tourists are coming to have a insight. This Temple is built in Pahari style.
