Manikaran Gurudwara OverviewRanked 3 of 50 sightseeing in Manali
Located in the Parvathi Valley, along the banks of the Parvathi River is the Manikaran. A small town, Manikaran has developed into being a prime tourist attraction with its incredible natural hot springs and religious pilgrim centres. There has also been the setting up of an experimental geothermal energy plant in the region.
At an altitude of 1760 m, the surrounding landscape is as incredible and beautiful as the legends and beliefs rooted in the Hindu and Sikh faith that attract tourists and pilgrims from all corners of the world.
The Gurudwara – a place of worship for the Sikh faith – in itself is a major attraction on account of the peaceful bathing afforded by the natural hot pond. The natural geothermal boiling water mixed with the cooler water from River Parvathi brings up hazy clouds of smoke that are both beautiful and relaxing. The flavourful and authentic food provided at the Gurudwara also adds its charm to the whole experience.
In addition, this region is also home to a number of temples in worship of the Hindu gods Rama, Vishnu and Krishna. This greatly spiritual and peaceful location gives travellers and tourists a chance to reconnect with themselves in the nestling corners of the deep valley – an experience one will never regret.
