Kullu Info

  • State: Himachal Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Hill

The city of Kullu nestles in the 'Valley of Gods', situated on the banks of River Beas at an altitude of 1230 m. Its main attraction is the scenic surroundings - green carpeted hills, sparkling rivers, tall deodar forests, apple orchards and uninterrupted views of the Himalayan snow-peaks. Kullu's history can be traced back to 1st century AD when Behangamani Pal, a native of Tripura founded the settlement here. Besides being blessed with abundant natural beauty, Kullu offers an excellent base for adventure sports. Although the more famous Manali becomes the final destination for the tourists, Kullu has its fair share of attractions.

 

Sightseeing Highlights:

 

Raghunath Temple holds prime importance among locals as well as tourists. Dedicated to Lord Rama, this temple was built in 1660 by Raja Jagat Singh. Sultanpur Palace in Kullu has miniature paintings and artefacts of ancient times. Jagannath Devi Temple is reached after an hour's hiking but offers glorious views of the region. Bijli Mahadev Temple located at a height of 2640 m is 11 Km from the town. Legend has it that the shiv lingam inside the temple is shattered every time there is lightning and the priests bind it with clarified butter or ghee. About 45 Km from Kullu is Manikaran famous for its natural hot springs. Basheshwar Mahadev Temple is 15 Km from Kullu and is known for its beautiful carvings.

"A beautiful and calm place" new review

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Manali valley is very beautiful and calm. It is good for those who want to have some peaceful environment. The air is aromatic and rejuvenates you. At Marhi one can find lot of ice. And Rohtang Pass is very nice place but the road from Marhi to Rohtang is dangerous.

It is a natural place and most wonderful place to visit. The waterfalls are the best one to visit and the River Amre must. You can buy many amazing things there for a low price and the handicrafts are the best made. We had trekking and we had many games there.
