committed a great wrong. To atone for the sin he sent a senior person to Ayodhya for statue of Lord Rama. This temple is greatly visited by thousands of tourists all over the world, especially during the Kullu Dussehra festival.

Bijali Mahadev Temple
The Bijali Mahadev temple is located about 10 kms. from Kullu across the Beas river and can only be reached by a trek. The Bijli Mahadev temple is one of the striking temple in the Kullu district. There is a Linga of Lord Shiva in this temple. From the temple a panoramic view of Kulu and Paravati valleys can be seen. A 60 feet high staff of Bijli Mahadev temple glistens like a silver needle in the sun. It is said that the tall staff attracts the divine blessings in the form of lightening. There is a strange phenomenon of nature here that once in twelve years, lightening takes place and the Linga shatters into pieces which are later collected piece by piece and glued together by the priest with the help of butter collected from the public, while chanting hymns. The butter leaves behind its melting point and solidifies as stone. This is a strange phenomenon and the scientists are baffled that how this metamorphosis takes place.

Roerich Art Gallery
The Roerich Gallery houses the paintings and sculptures of the famous Russian artist, Nicholas Roerich. This at gallery consists of about 7000 paintings and sketches of Roerich.


Manikaran is only 45 kms. from Kullu and just 3 kms. from Kasol. Manikaran is known for the hot Sulphur springs that bubble next to the icy waters of the Parvati river at 1737 m. The place is visited by both Hindus and Sikhs. Thousands of people take a holy dip in hot waters. The water is so hot that even the dal, rice and vegetables etc. can be cooked in it. According to an old legend, Manikaran is connected with Lord Shiva and his divine consort, Parvati, who lost her ear rings here, which gave birth to hot waters on the bank of Parvati river. There is a Lord Rama, Shiva temple and Gurudwara.
