Beside the oval shaped lake, there is also a beautiful and well-sculptured temple dedicated to the sage Prashar. The brilliant architectural design of the temple is exemplary. The ones who are interested in architecture, the temple next to the lake will enthrall you with its riveting Himachali architecture, blending perfectly with the landscape. This mysterious lake is famous for the small circular island on its surface which keeps on changing its location from time to time. The locals believe that they have seen the island to be at the same location for few months in a row and then change a number of times with a month. The mystery around this lake has intrigued many travellers to visit the Prashar Lake and trek.
To protect the ecological balance of the site, the temple management decided not to allow tourists and pilgrims to go close to the Prashar Lake. Since the year 2000, they installed a fence along the circumference of the lake, making it impossible for the tourists to go close to the mysterious lake of Prashar.
