Manali has many attractions, but the main centre of interest is undoubtedly the Hadimba Temple. It was dedicated to goddess Hadimba or Hadimba Devi. Dating back to 1553, it is built around a natural cave, which enshrines the footprints of the goddess. Hadimba was the wife of Bhima, one of the five great Pandava brothers of the Mahabharata. She later became the patron goddess of the Kullu royal family. This four-story wooden temple is located in the middle of a forest, called the Dhungiri Van Vihar.
Kothi is situated at the foothill of the Rohtang pass, at an altitude of 2500 meters. It is just 12 kilometers away from Manali. It offers a magnificent view of the snow capped mountains and glaciers and the Beas River flow through a very deep and narrow gorge. Kothi used to be a camping site when the Rohtang pass had to be climbed on foot.
This is dedicated to the sage Manu. Near the Hadimba temple, flows the Manalsu River into the main Beas river. Across the Manalsu River, there is the original village of Manali, that houses the ancient temple of the sage Manu. Manali itself is named after Manu, who is said to have dwelt here.
Manali houses three Tibetan monasteries, all recently built. The Tibetans living around these monasteries offer a wide range of Tibetan handicrafts and carpets for the visitors to buy. Two of these monasteries are located in the main downtown of Manali and one in Aleo. Aleo is located on the left bank of the River Beas in Manali.
Naggar, a lovely village surrounded by forests, was the capital of Kullu in the 16th century. The monuments in the region witness its glorious past. The Naggar Castle, a stone and wood structure built by Raja Sidh over 500 years ago, has been converted into a heritage hotel. The gracefully built castle has a temple in the courtyard and houses a small museum.
The Rohtang pass is 51 kilometers from Manali, at a 3980-meter altitude. The pass offers a spectacular panorama of the mountains. It once served as a crucial trade route, and still remains the gateway to the districts of Lahaul and Spiti. The pass is open from mid April to November each year, and provides wonderful views of the entire surroundings. Just beyond the pass, there is the Sonapani glacier and the twin peak of Gaypan.
Vashist, a small village located on the left bank of the River Beas, three kilometers from Manali, is worth a visit. It is renowned for its hot water springs and temple. The village is also the site of some old temples, dedicated to the great sage Vashisht and to Lord Rama. The sulphur baths are just beyond these shrines.
