Bijli Mahadev Temple


Placed at a height of 2460 meter is Bijli Mahadev, a sacred destination, 14 Km to the south-east of Kullu and a 3 km trek from Mansari village. A beautiful meadow with an ancient Shiva temple, famous for its stone Shiva Linga which shatters (it is believed) each time lightning strikes it, only to be resurrected by the Pujari. The panoramic view from Bijli Mahadev of Kullu and the Manikaran valley is enthralling. It is a favorite spot for visitors and the local populace alike. One can also visit the Palani waterfall which lies 6 km to the north of Bijli Mahadev and is a popular picnic spot. If visiting the waterfall in March, take a stop at the fair which is held there annually during this month.
