Manikaran is known for the famous Gurudwara and the Parvati river, creating the parvati valley. The hot spring here is considered sacred by Sikh devotees and is believed to have medicinal powers too! 

HolidayIQ reviewer Prachi says, “Renowned for its pilgrimage centers, the sacred town of hot water spring 'Manikaran' is perched on the right bank of the roaring river 'Parvati' at an altitude of 1700 m, in Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh. We were greeted by what we thought were dense, really dense, clouds making visibility quite vulnerable until we realized these were vapours rising high from the hot water spring. We were mesmerized.”
