Must visit Places in Kullu

 Raghunath Temple

 

 

The oldest temple in the valley is a place of much festivity and color around and during Dussera and even otherwise assumes much religious importance amongst the locals.

Wrapped around in an ancient legend, the temple finds connections to Lord Rama, and the idol of Lord Raghunath placed here, is said to be the same as the one used by him. While it derives much significance from the legend, it borrows its design and architecture from the Pahari and Pyramidal styles. Other than the spirituality surrounding the temple, the sceneries and views about it too are equally alluring.

 

Bijli Mahadev Temple

 

 

This is the one temple in Kullu that you cannot miss. From a legend where lightning strikes, to a huge structure and surreal surroundings with some of the best views and sceneries of Kullu, the temple is enchanting in every bit.

It is said that the structure houses a Shiva Linga which was broken into pieces by lightning, that were brought back together and bounded by a temple priest using butter. The word around is that this repeats itself every year.
The temple has to be reached by a trek through a 3 km long path covered with pine trees. The surroundings and the sceneries that one witnesses during the trek make it breathtakingly beautiful and refreshing rather than tiring.

The mesmerising views all around will not only leave you spellbound by its beauty but also filled with adrenaline by the challenges it throws at you at every nook and corner.

Although the trail is not really well laid, the thrill it brings is unmatched to any other trek. Although the trek is quite long and taxing, the reward is extremely exhilarating. As the altitude increases, the surroundings become more enchanting adorned with dense forests, lush green meadows and a plethora of gushing streams, all being flanked by majestic snow clad peaks.

The peaks with changing colours are quite unique and the sun gleaming over them makes the surrounding all the more beautiful.

However, no matter what number of challenges it presents, the overall trek is exhilarating enough to make it one of the most sought after Himalayan Pass trek at high altitudes.
