The historic town of Mandi lies on the banks of River Beas. Sage Mandva is said to have meditated here. This one time capital of the princely state of Mandi is a fast developing town that still retains much of its original charm and character. Mandi is renowned for its 81 old stone temples and their fine carvings. The town has remains of old palaces and notable examples of colonial architecture. The temples of Bhoothnath, Trilokinath, Panchvaktra and Shyamakali are among the more famous ones. The week-long Shivratri Fair in Mandi is held in February/March. It is a major attraction every year with cultural programmes, exhibitions, sports etc.
Packed with a thick green cover of pine and deodar trees, this geographically beautiful region is also ingrained with rich culture and heritage in the form of its numerous temples spread all across the town. The Shivratri Fair in Mandi is really worth attending!
