REWALSAR

LOCATION: 24 km from Mandi.

Rewalsar is sacred to Sikhs, Hindus, & Buddhists. The Hindus consider that Rishi Lomas did his penance in devotion to Lord Shiva in this place. Rewalsar is important to the Sikhs who have a Gurudwara built in commemoration of Guru Gobind Singh’s visit to this place.  It is a very sacred place for the Bhutanese, who are following this doctrine of religion as their State Religion. So there is a temple, gompa, and gurudwara, besides the holy lake with floating islands.

JANJEHLI

LOCATION: At a distance of 67 km. from Mandi.

It has all the elements that make it a paradise for trekkers.  It offers paths under thick deodar forests, beautiful scenery, waterfalls and springs

PRASHAR LAKE

LOCATION: 40 Kms north of Mandi

The beautiful Prashar Lake is located high in the mountains. It is here that the sage Prashar is said to have meditated.  On the lake’s edge is a three-storied Pagoda-like temple dedicated to the sage. Capped with a roof of slate tiles, the temple has a wealth of wood carvings. An old temple, it is said to have been built by Raja Ban Sen of Mandi in the 14th century. An entire panorama of snowy mountain ranges is visible from this location.

SHIKARI DEVI

LOCATION: There are two approaches, one through Janjehali and the other through Karsog.

Trekking Paths trough woods of assorted trees and shrubs-which include several medicinal herbs-two separate trek routes lead up to this ancient shrine which crowns the top of a hill. Hunters in the area once prayed to the goddess of success in their hunt and here perhaps, lies the origin of the name “Shikari Devi”. The goddess is worshiped in the form of a stone image.  Interestingly, the temple which is said to have been in existence since the time of the Pandavas, has no roof,   for local legend has it, that all attempts to build one have been unsuccessful.
