Trip Planner: Asia / India / Himachal Pradesh / Kullu District / Manali Tehsil / Manali / Hidimba Devi Temple
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Hidimba Devi Temple, a sanctuary in the Himalayan foothills dedicated to a deity from the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. Dating back to the 16th century, the temple was built over a massive, jutting rock, a manifestation of the earth goddess. Interestingly, devotees here pay their respects to the lark rock, instead of an image of the deity. Admire the tall wooden tower and the sacred stone inside, or enjoy the atmosphere of the exterior, surrounded by a tranquil cedar forest.

The place is situated between mountains and thick timberland, after Mall road (the famous shopping market). This spot is in the middle of new and old Manali. It is truly beautiful,The Temple is comprised of woods and is encompassed by such a significant number of trees. Wood work of sanctuary is stunning. The wood carving is amazingly done on the walls of this temple. Must visit place in old Manali.
The most adorable temple one can ever visit. The culture mixed with the nature and that feeling is tremendous. The view is awesome and the travel is also very nice. The journey to this temple was authentic. Also, the views are adorable and also very nice place for photographers.
