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. With our international travel planner, Manali attractions like Hidimba Devi Temple can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
