Only Temple Dedicated to The creator of world, Manu, writer of Manusmruti, Standing Serene, firm, grounding it's roots to the history of mankind, gives a pleasant pleasure just like we get looking at our forefathers.

It was a very soothing and nice experience to be there , thank god I dint decided to go there by walk from old mnali bridge because the elevation of the roads is quit deadly . The view from the temple is so amazing , the snow covered mountain 🏔 peaks are damn beautiful. This place was heaven for photography. Inside the temple the camera was not allowed , so you can’t take pics of the inside temple it’s fully made of wood , beautiful architect with beautiful atmosphere, peaceful and calm.
