The Sugandesha Temple

Built by Sugandha, queen of Ssankaravarman in the ninth century A.D., the temple has a square sanctum with a portico in front and a peristyle around. It is open on one side and has trefoiled niches with sculptures on other sides. The area has been fenced.

It is located around 30 kms from Srinagar on the way to Sopore at a place called Pattan. There is a bigger temple a little down the Road which was built by the King.
