Manali Tour

MONUMENTS
 
Old Manali
 
Set along a meandering cliff-side road, Old Manali offers travellers astounding views. Walk through this serene part of town to soak up lovely old charm provided by Himachali houses embellished with wooden carvings. During peak season, a number of cafés and curio stores open their doors only to close six months later. But if you’re lucky you can go home packing fresh local cheese, jams and traditional artefacts.
 
 Hadimba Temple
 
The Hadimba Temple was built in 1533 in honour of the Goddess Hadimba, wife of Bhima (one of the Pandava brothers from the Mahabharata). This four-tiered wooden temple is positioned in the midst of the tree-crammed Dhungri Park. Intricately carved with Hindu figures and symbols, the shrine holds in its inner sanctum a brass statue of the deity. A good time to visit is during May, when the town’s folk host a large festival that involves sacrifices being made on behalf of the goddess.
 
Gadhan Thekchokling Gompa
 
Built in 1969 by Manali’s Tibetan population, this prayer hall has a yellow pagoda roof and vivid frescoes on the walls. The entrance has a plaque listing all the Tibetans killed in the late 80s during the uprisings against the Chinese. The bright prayer hall houses a statue of Shakyamuni Buddha.
 
Vashisht
 
Vashihit, a village located three kms from Manali, is home to hot sulphur springs. Legend has it... Lord Lakhsman created this natural wonder by shooting an arrow into the ground. Today, Himachal Tourism runs a bath complex here, and you can take a 30-minute dip in the rejuvenating springs. The village also packs two ancient temples, one dedicated to Ram and the other to Vashisht (Lord Rama’s guru), for whom the village is named after.
 
MUSEUM
 
Museum of Himachal Culture and Folk Art
