Mandi Pilgrimage

The Bhootnath temple, Mandi’s most famous Shrine, is also said to be the fountainhead of the original settlement. This Temple was made in year 1527. Legend has it that it was here that the phenomena of a cow, washing a Shivalinga with milk that was released of its own accord, occurred. Lord Shiva appeared to Raja Ajbar Sen, the ruler of the area, and told him that the Shivalinga was a manifestation of himself as ‘Bhootnath’. Lord Shiva’s Blessings led to the building of this temple in the Shikara style, and this growth of the fledgling town of Mandi in the 12th century.

The temples of Mandi are largely dedicated to lord Shiva with each being noteworthy bath as a pilgrimage spot and as an architectural wonder. 

The Triloknath temple is an essential visit for its unique depiction of the three- headed Lord Shiva as the 'Lord of Three worlds' while the Panchvaktara Temple has the five headed Shiva – portraying his five aspects. Another important shrine is the Ardhanarishvara Temple that depicts Shiva in his composite form – the right side being male and the left side, female.

A walk up the Tarna Hill brings one to the 17th century Syamakali Temple which was built by Raja Syama Sen in year 1664-79 and dedicated to the goddess kali. Built on the Top of Tarna Hill. Numerous other temples and places are eloquent monuments of the rich past of the town.

15 km from Janjheli there is an ancient temple of Shikari Devi and some marvellous landscapes.

The Shivratri Fair, held annually for one week in March, is worth the attention of any traveller. The images of hundreds of deities are carried on elaborately decorated palanquins to make their way through the temples of the town. Music, Song, dance and drama make the week a spiritual yet enjoyable experience.
