Kuarsi (कुआरसी) is a village in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, India.



It is situated approximately 10.6 km away from the peak of Dhauladhar. Other surrounding towns in the area include: Banun, Dharamshala, and Chhatrari.[1]


Dr Naval Viyogi[2] writes....Most probably Nagas moved from Kashmir valley and settled in different valleys of Himachal Pradesh. Still today these Nagas can be Seen in numerous temples and heard in legends throughout the modern province of Himachal Pradesh.

There is also another Naga in Chamba state called Indru Naga. This is the same as Nahusha whose story is told in the Mahabharata. Indru Naga is worshiped at several paces : at Kuārsi on the road leading to Dharmasala, at Samra in Ranhun kothi, at Chinota and Trehta. There is also another temple of Indru Naga at Kanhiarā in Kangra. [3]
