Words defy to describe the majestic grandeur of Manali. In our constantly moving, 24/7 society, we’re in a frenetic rat race! With so much technology and gadgetry, we hardly have any time to take rest. Manali’s awe-inspiring beauty was a perfect resting place for my sapped soul.
Manali is named after the Hindu lawgiver Manu. The word ‘Manali’ comes from ‘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 is also often referred to as the ‘Valley of the Gods’. The Old Manali village has an ancient temple dedicated to Manu.
