Kullu Tourist Attractions

Tourist Attraction in Kullu

Raghunath Temple
The Raghunath temple was built by the Raja Jagat Singh of Kullu. This temple houses the image of Raghunath, the Lord Rama, who is also the main deity of the valley. In the 17th century, Raja Jagat Singh 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 (14 km)
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. 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.

 

Kasol (42 km):
Kasol is an open glade, located by the banks of the river Paravti. Kasol is charmingly located on an open space which slopes down to the broad expanse of clear white sand at the Parvati river. Kasol is a nice place for the trout fishing.

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, Kullu

Manikaran (45 km)
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. Several treks are made from here to Pulga, Khirganga and Mantalai.

Naggar (1760 m):
Naggar is delightfully situated on the left bank of the Beas, on a wooded slope and provides an extensive view. It was the capital of erstwhile Kulu state for about 1400 years. There are large number of famous temples of Vishnu, Tripura Sundari and Lord Krishna. Naggar is also a base camp for undertaking treks to Chanderkhani Pass and to remote valley of Malana.
