Very close to Manali center, it is located in a park. A beautiful temple dedicated to Goddess Hadimba having pagoda roof with wood carvings. The main idol sits in a grotto-like cave attended by a priestess. In the grounds there are women with rabbits holding them to take photos.

Nicely maintained... The place itself where the temple is situated is really beautiful.. With long sky touching tress all around and peaceful environment... If you want to visit another temple than there is ghatotkach temple which is 500mtr from this place.....

The Hadimba Temple is an intriguing pagoda style wooden 4-storied cave temple built in 1553 in a cedar forest. The temple is dedicated to Hadimba Devi, (sister of the demon Hadimb from the Indian epic, Mahabharata) who married Bhima, the Pandava and gave birth to their son Ghatotkatcha. The temple does not have an idol, but a footprint on a... More

The place is very serene and beautiful with the temple in the midst of tall trees. No stalls or hawkers are allowed in the premises which keeps the place clean.

Liked the garden surrounding the area, and the drive upto the temple.The inner sanctum of the temple is a very old structure and worth a visit. Though quite disliked the commercialization around the temple, and locals trying to earn money by getting you to click your pic with their rabbits.

Meant as temple for Gatodhgaj, this temple is really mystical and so are the myths that surround this temple. Local belief is that if your wish becomes true, a mountain goat / buffalo is slayed for the presiding deity and the horns are hung up at the temple. Hence you can find hoards of horns in the temple and some... More

It was rather unusual for me to visit this temple. And even surprising was to watch a long queue of tourists and devotees standing for almost an hour to get into the temple. The temple looks ancient and decorated with horns of some wild beasts that gives a real scary look. It is surrounded by huge and tall pine trees... More

The temple is located in a peaceful environment. There was a big crowd outside the temple, so it was hard to get inside the temple. Somehow we managed to sneak in.
