Mani Karan Temple
Introduction

In the wanderings of Lord Siva and Goddess Parvati in the forests of the Himalayan ranges, they came to a place now called MANI KARAN. The mountain - locked area, the lush green patches and the forests charmed them and they decided to stay there for sometime.

For long eleven hundred years they remained at this place. At one time, when the Lord was relaxing with the Goddess, in the beautiful waters of a stream running by the side, the 'MANI' (Jewel) in an ear-ring of the goddess dropped somewhere.

Parvati was much distressed and there was a thorough search but efforts to find out the jewel failed. Lastly, the Lord ordered his attendants, to trace out the jewel, wherever it may be. That was also unsuccessful. Lord Siva got enraged, as a result of which his third eye opened. With the opening of the third eye of the Lord Siva, a very ominous event, there was a great commotion, all over the universe. The entire universe was much too upset and apprehended a great calamity.

*In later administrative re-organisation Mani Karan complex has gone to Kulu district now. But as Kangra people devotedly even now treat Mani Karan tro be in Kangra the description has been given here.
