Manali - Manu Ki Nagri
Manali is named after the Santan Hindu lawgiver Manu. The name Manali is regarded as the derivative of 'Manu-Alaya' which literally means 'the abode of Manu'. Legend has it that sage Manu stepped off his ark in Manali to recreate human life after a great flood had deluged the world. Manali lies in the North of Kullu Valley. The valley is often referred to as the 'Valley of the Gods'. Old Manali village has an ancient temple dedicated to sage Manu.
The British introduced apple trees in the area. The first apple orchard was set up by the British near Patlikuhl, before this, no Apple trees grew in the area. To this day, apple— along with plum and pear— remain the best source of income for the majority of inhabitants. Both Rainbow and Brown trout was also introduced into the rivers and streams of the area by the colonizers.
With the increase in disposable incomes and somewhat owing to the rise of disturbances in Kashmir in the late 1980s, Manali witnessed a surge in tourist traffic. This once quiet village was transformed into a bustling town with numerous home stays as well as the occasional boutique hotel. During the warmer summer months, cafes and restaurants can be seen doing brisk business.
Kullu Manali is best known for its scenic beauty in the midst of Himalayas. Historical references about the Kullu valley dates back to ancient Hindu literary works of Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas.
The first Prime Minister of India late Pt. Nehru, he came here twice for his holidays first in 1958 for a month and second in 1960 for ten days.
Hadimba Devi Temple locally known as Dungari Temple is located in Manali, a hill station in the State of Himachal Pradesh. It is ancient cave temple dedicated to Hidimbi Devi, wife of Bhima, a figure in the Indian epic Mahabharata. The temple is surrounded by a clear forest called Dungari Van Vihar at the foot of Himalayas. The sanctuary is built over a huge rock jutting out of the ground which was worshiped as an image of the deity. The structure was built in 1553 by Maharaja Bahadur Singh. The temple is built around a cave where Devi Hadimba performed meditation. Hidimbi was supposed to have lived with her brother Hadimb and not much is known about their parents. Born into a Rakshasa family, Hadimba vowed to marry one who would defeat her brother Hadimb, who was supposed to be very brave and fearless. During the Pandavas exile when they visited Manali, Bhima, one of the Pandavas, killed Hadimb. Thereafter, Hadimba married to Bhim and gave birth to their son Ghatotkacha.
