was dedicated to Shiva Bhutesha and Shiva Ugresa.
The structure of the Wangath Temple is based on the designs of the 8th century. There are mere ruins of the holy sites due to uncertain conditions in the valley.
There is spring as well, known as Naran Nag. In the past, it was known as Sadora nag. The temple was made into three groups. The first group consists of six temples with one main temple that contains two entrances opposite each other. The two closed sides of the temple are externally decorated by a square-topped sunken.
The second group of temples is at a distance of 200 yards from the first group of temples. This temple is enclosed by a perforated two-chambered gate-way.
