Nurshingh Phowaar (Often mispronounced as nursing phowar) is the name of a place in Soon Valley where one can find beautiful temples and lovely water springs. The temples still retain their original shape although rapidly deteriorating. Regarding its history, there was a Hindu Nurshingh Daas who came to this place to pray. The drops of the water spring falls on an adjoining mountains and that is why how this place got the name of ‘nurshingh phowar’. In the past, in the month of beesakh, a besaakhi mela used to be celebrated at this place where Yaatrees (pilgrims) came from distant towns and villages. There is a beautiful waterfall, greenery at its best, mind blowing water springs and amazing archaeological as well as historical temples at this place. These days, this temple is under the department of Oqaaf. It is a pity and we repeat, it is a pity and sheer callousness of our government that this temples has been turning into ruins since the last so many years. No care has been given to this place, no funds are allocated and we people are going to lose this precious historical site located in our own valley. Need of the hour is to develop and protect this place.
