Bathu ki Ladi temples are distinctive from other temples in one thing. They are visible only for less than 6 months in a year. Rest of the time they submerge in Pong dam waters. When they are visible in summers people can reach them by road. This is possible because low Pong dam water level allows it during that period. In between, their beauty is irresistible when they are partially submerged. They are within easy reach from Raadballi. It is also possible to reach them by boat during their transit to depths of the lake. Apart from historical value, this phenomenon makes them an important place of interest in Pong dam.
