  • Only Temple Dedicated to The creator of world, Manu, writer of Manusmruti, Standing Serene, firm, grounding it's roots to the history of mankind, gives a pleasant pleasure just like we get looking at our forefathers. Respect of the place, the serenity of Hinduism is ensured by maintaining decorum, being in clothes covering knees of visitors. Loved it this place..
  • It was a very soothing and nice experience to be there , thank god I dint decided to go there by walk from old mnali bridge because the elevation of the roads is quit deadly . The view from the temple is so amazing , the snow covered mountain 🏔 peaks are damn beautiful. This place was heaven for photography. Inside the temple the camera was not allowed , so you can’t take pics of the inside temple it’s fully made of wood , beautiful architect with beautiful atmosphere, peaceful and calm.
