About Manu Maharishi Temple

Located in the Old Manali region, the Manu Maharishi Temple is considered very sacred by the people of the town. The temple is dedicated to Rishi Manu, the great sage. According to Hindu mythology, Manu is the originator of the human race. Mythology says that he saved the Vedas and the seven sages from the flood. It is believed that after the great flood, Manu landed at Manali and then lived here. The temple attracts tourist from different parts of the world, due to the fact it is the only existing temple dedicated to Manu. The temple is surrounded by lush greenery in the form of pine trees, and mosses and one has to walk on a slippery stone path to reach the temple premises. The temple structure is made of stones and beautiful engravings of gods and goddesses on the walls. There are also many exquisitely made stone figures around the temple.
