Manikaran Gurudwara

Manikaran Gurudwara Overview

Ranked 3 of 51 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.

It is located at Parvati valley in between the rivers Beas & Parvati. It is a pilgrimage center for Hindus & Sikhs. Manikaran is well known for its hot spring and its beautiful landscape. Bhog like rice, Dal etc are cooked in hot spring. Rice kept in an utensil & is placed on the hot spring for boiling. Nice and peaceful place. My last visit on mid of March, 2018 have noticed that some improvement have been made which respect to approaching road and a proper parking place.

Amazing place

A little away from the kullu-manali route .. But worth visiting.The road to kasol-manikaran is beautiful. Parvati River valley, pine & cedar trees and snow capped peaks .. It's magical.We even got to eat some sweet ripe plums after picking them from a roadside tree ..Manikaran gurudwara and shiv mandir are located on a geothermal spring.There's a langar at the gurudwara .. Fantastic experience eating there.The hot water gushing from the earth is the main attraction. There are many geothermal hoy springs along the himalayan range, since Himalayas were formed due to collision of Indian and Eurasian geological plates. There's friction which is generating heat. Places where an water reservoir is located close to the geothermal hear source, the water heats up and moves to the surface through cracks.Traffic is an issue everywhere during peak season. All roads are narrow. You can not do anything. Just stay cool and tell your vehicle driver to continue in the left line and avoid breaking the line to go in front.Rude Local drivers often break the line leading to more jams ..

Peace of mind

It was a different experience going there the weather outside the Gurudwara was so chilly and inside it was vice versa. We missed the langarh was running late. But the atmosphere was very peaceful. We can take Bath in the shrines divided for males and females and enjoy hot water Bath ..

Gurudwara with magical spring waters

Manikaran Gurudwara is located near Kasol, it's around the 3 km from Kasol, we went by walk from Kasol to Manikaran Gurudwara. The place is full of spiritual and mystical spring waters. The Parvati river is flowing beside the Gurudwara and the water is clear and cold. But there are total hot springs which emerge near the Gurudwara and this hot water is entirely used for preparing the langar for 1000 s of devotees.The place is very popular among the tourists and there are hot water pools called as kund in which people take dips before entering the holy place. The place is beautiful and it takes easily 1 hr to visit temple and have langar in the Gurudwara.People are also very joyful coming on bikes from all over Punjab.

Manikaran-the place for soul development

Manikaran, just about 8-10KM far from kasol. It has natural water springs where we can take Bath. There is a prashad of raw rice and you have to put that in water and that rice boils in just 15-20 minutes. Route to manikaran is little bit risky, it just gives a adrenaline rush. Good place for Bikers.Perfect time for visiting the manikaran will be from may-september as then there is less chances of landslides. The offerings I. E. 'Langar' taste is delicious in gurudwara. It gives a piece to soul. Near manikaran, there is kasol too. In kasol, nightlife is amazing and good for trekking.Sightseeing while travelling to manikaran is awesome. Big mountains captured with snow.Avoid travelling to manikaran during any festive season, if you don't ant to struck in traffic jam.

Must visit

Just a gurudwara on banks of parwati river but the drive along the broken unwinding narrow road is great. Great trip if you want to go in for the views along the banks of parwati river, 80 km drive from Manali. Start early reach by noon. Have langar drive back by evening. Or stay overnight at the gurudwara on the banks of gushing parwati river. Explore kasol 4 km downhill.
