The history of kashmir has been fascinating.until recently when terrorism and insurgency had gripped it like a glove it had been one of repeated invasions from the northern mountains and passes.but lets go back 3000+ years and a time of hindu kings.when all people in kashmir were hindus.a time of plenty and peace.there are numerous ancient temples all over the valley.one such and the most magnficient ancient temple is at narayan nag.i have visited this beautiful valley of the wangat river in north west kashmir numerous times.due to the location of this trout beat right next to the ruins of this temple i have named the trout here the temple trout.this beat is again right up there in my top five in kashmir.
