Situated deep within the Parvati Valley of the famous hill district of Kullu in Himachal Pradesh, the Manikaran Sahib is one of the prominent holy spots in India.
Manikaran Sahib is a vital pilgrimage spot for both Hindus and Sikhs. This place has significance in some of the earliest Hindu scriptures that highlight how Manu, the first human on earth, created life and saved this place from a flood.
Several mythological tales around the region also document Hindu deities like Shiva, Parvati, and Vishnu.
According to legends, Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati were once exploring the hilly surroundings and the serene forests of the place. Shiva decided to meditate while Parvati took a bath.
During bathing, Parvati lost a jewel that she was wearing, and a serpent in the river stole it. Angered by his inability to find the gem, Shiva did his Tandava dance and warned the snake to return Parvati’s earring.
The serpent gladly offered the jewel to the Lord and apologized. Manikaran became the name of the place because the Hindi translation for the phrase earring is Manikaran.

A devotee who Vittala himself helped 😍 Image
The supreme sadhana to attain bhagavan is through prema bhakti. A person who earnestly cries for god with real thirst is surely a blessed soul.
There was a small village near Pandharpur called” Sinchirunipuram” and there lived a rich man named Gangadar Rao who was a great devotee of lord Vitthal. He was a honest, truthful and straightforward man involved in numerous bhagavat sevas.
