Prashar Lake lies 49 km north of Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, with a three storied pagoda-like temple dedicated to the sage Prashar.
Surface elevation: 2,730 m (8,960 ft) *Mysterious Story*
It is believed that Sage Prashar meditated on the banks of this lake, hence it is named as Prashar Lake. Bhima, one of the Pandava brothers, had created the lake. The story says, after the Kurukshetra / Mahabharat war, Pandavas were returning with Lord Kamrunag. When they reached this place, Kamrunag loves the tranquil surroundings and decides to live here forever. So, Bheem (the strongest of the lot) rams his elbow on one of the mountains and creates a big dent in the land but he ends up fracturing his own elbow and was hospitalised for few days. This dent became Prashar Lake.
Till now no one has been able to find out the depth of Prashar Lake. 📸 @itisinthename
