About Manki Point

Manki Point is situated at the ‘Air Force Station’ of Kasauli. This is near the Lower Mall road and about 4 kilometers from the center of the town. According to a mythical legend, when Lord Hanuman was carrying ‘sanjeevani buti’ all the way from the Himalayas to save the life of ailing Lord Laxman, one of his feet touched this hill. It is said that this is the reason why the hill appears to be foot-shaped! Since the point is an air force base, it provides restricted access, and entry is allowed until 4:30 pm only. Also, one is not allowed to carry electronic items like cell phones, chargers, selfie sticks, pen drives, sim card, memory card, headphones, etc. These can either be locked up in your cars or deposited at the lockers provided. What visitors commence after a physical examination and procurement of entry passes is a pretty steep climb of more than 1200 feet with a couple of monkeys greeting now and then. Speakers blaring devotional songs keeps one entertained and motivated all along. Once atop, a spectacular view is seen. A small temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman seems to be just in the right place. On clear nights one gets a fantastic, glittery view of the nearby city of Chandigarh from the Manki Point.
