Tandi Village
About Tandi Village

Tandi village is located at the convergence of Chandra & Bhaga rivers in the Pattan valley some 7 kms away from Keylong. Revenue and settlement records disclose that Tandi was founded by Raja Rana Chand Ram under the name of Chandi which over the years got corrupted into Tandi.

 
Mythological Stories associated with Tandi

There are atleast three mythological stories associated with Tandi.
1) Tandi is believed to means Tan Dehi, i.e., giving up of the body. This is linked with Draupadi, the wife of Pandav. as, who left her body at this place.
2) Second, this is believed that Rishi Vashishtha who meditated near the hot water springs of Manali was cremated at this convergence; hence named Tandi, i.e., body consumed.
3) A legend says that there were two lovers, Chandra being the daughter of the Moon and Bhaga the son of the Sun god. To perform there eternal marriage, they decided to climb to the Baralacha La & from there they ran in opposite directions. Chandra being active and smart easily found her way &reached Tandi after covering the distance of 115 kms. Soon Bhaga was found coming with great struggle through the narrow gorges to Tandi where they both met and their celestial marriage was performed. Thus flowing south-east and south-west both met at Tandi to enter the marriage. Bhaga covered about 60 kms. distance which was very tough.

Another village above the convergence is Gushal which looks very wonderful when seen from Tupchiling or Kargha. The convergence itself is best seen from Tupchiling, Kargha and Ghushal.
