The reverent word Renuka conjures up many awe-some spectacles associated with the life of Parasurama, the sixth incarnation of Lord Mahavishnu. It is said that in this region lived the sage and at his instance Parasuram severed the head of his mother Renuka. The famous Renuka lake attracting unending streams of sight-seers and god seekers bears semblance to Mother Renuka's physical frame and the crystal waters also look like a sleeping woman. There are many places of religious interest in its surroundings and among them,. the Gayatri mandir takes pride of place. The temple is recently built by one ardent devotee called Mahatma Pyara Nanda Brahmachari. It is enshrining an imposing statue of Panchamukhi Gayatri Devi - the Mother of Vedas and is about six feet in height. The exquisite artistry of the sculptor- bends the heads of the devotees in veneration and makes them oblivious oft he surroundings for long. The temple houses many superbly sculptured marble images of Maha Vishnu. Siva Brahma, Ganapathy, Indra etc. in well-built mini-shrines. There are receiving due worship daily. Around this sacred shrine there are decent asrams run by sadhus giving accommodation to the pilgrims visiting round the year. The Parasuram lake and the temple located very near are heightening its spiritual eminence to a commendable degree.

It lies 45 km off Nahan, one of the famous towns in Himachal Pradesh, accessible by bus.
