'With the improved sensitivity with respect to the previous generation, current space-borne and ground-based gamma-ray telescopes have made the number of gamma-ray sources detected at GeV-TeV energies increase many folds over the last decade. Many of the detected extended gamma-ray sources are not associated with any known sources at other wavelengths. Understanding the nature of these sources and the origin of the observed high energy gamma-ray emission remains a great challenge. Using the MAGIC telescopes, we have observed one such unassociated gamma-ray source, named HESS J1841-055, at TeV energies. In this talk, we present our detailed investigation on this source using MAGIC data and other multi-waveband information on nearby sources. We discuss the interpretation of this source as a cosmic-ray accelerator.'
