Manikaran in pics: Just a glimpse

Manikaran is a picturesque spot in Himachal Pradesh (India). A bone rattling bus journey away from the plains but is every bit worth the jolts and discomfort endured in the journey by road. The hot pools drain away the hurt and infuse happiness. The scenic beauty revives you.

The Story (in Punjabi)

Manikaran Sahib (Gurudwara)

The Shiva Temple (right next to the Gurudwara)

Shiva Tandava pose with vapour rising furiously from the rock: awe inspiring sight

Ramji temple a little away from the gurudwara but in the same complex

Naina mata temple 


  1. Manikaran is on the way to Rohatang Pass, right? Yeah I remember it's a nice spot.

    1. Generally yes, but actually it is on a side road from Bhuntar (Kullu) and is about 45 kms away from the main Kullu-Manali-Rohtang highway.
