It has predominantly rural surroundings with three villages, Kondabal, Jarokbal and Gratbal overlooking the lake. Manasbal is considered as the 'supreme gem of all Kashmir lakes' with lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) nowhere more abundant or beautiful than on the margins of this lake during July and August. It is the deepest lake of Kashmir valley and perhaps the only one that develops stable summer stratification. Manasbal is classified as warm monomictic lake and circulates once in a year for a short time. The other lakes in the region either have weak stratification or are polymictic. Close to the northern shore are the ruins of a fort which was built in 17th century by a Moghul king to cater the needs of caravans that used to travel from Panjab to Srinagar. On the south, overlooking the lake is a hillock-Ahtung which is used for limestone extraction. The eastern part is mainly mountainous and towards the north is an elevated plateau known as 'Karewa' consisting of lacustrine, fluviatile and loessic deposits.


Kheer Bhavani Temple is dedicated to Ragnya Devi (form of Goddess Durga). As per the legends, Lord Rama worshipped the Goddess Ragnya, for the period of his exile. When the exile period was completed, Lord Rama asked Lord Hanuman to relocate the shrine of the Goddess. Lord Hanuman relocated the shrine of the Goddess to Shadipora.

According to another legend, Ragnya Devi appeared in the dream of a priest by the name of Raghunath Gadroo and asked him to shift her shrine to the present place. Subsequently, the shrine was shifted in the village of TullaMulla. The original temple was constructed by Maharana Pratap Singh in 1912. Later, it was renovated by Maharaja Hari Singh. In the temple complex, an image of Ragnya Devi is placed in small shrine made in white marble.

Likewise, Jesht Ashtami (May-June) is another occasion, when people come from and near to have a glimpse of the Goddess.
