The only attraction is the pagoda style temple which doesn't have any attractive value as such. It's quite curious why people line up to go inside the temple though. The place has no arrangements to reduce long queues, and the management does not seem to have any intention of doing so for the comfort of visitors. It's a long walk... More

There are not much of the places to visit in Manali. So you should go to Hadimba Devi Mandir. It's an average place but a very good picturesque location. Also you can have a ride on Yak which is a wonderful experience.

Hadimba Mandir, situated in Old Manali, a place to be visited, as this temple is situated midst greenery. There are tall and huge trees surrounded by this temple. Many movies have been shot at this place, where you get to see huge yaks, tiny rabbits and the traditional himachal oufits for photography. A peaceful place to sit around with family... More

Hadimbad temple is set in between the deodar forest and is a good place to visit. Try the van vihar walk behind the hadimba temple to get a feeling of the deodar forest

The Hadimba temple is located just 2 Kms from the Mall road in the lush green deodar forest. The surrounding atmosphere is amazing and breathtaking. It is an ancient cave temple dedicated to Hidimbi Devi, sister of Hidimb who was a Rakshas in Mahabharata. Hidimba devi vowed to marry one who would defeat her brother Hidimb, later Bhima killed Hidimb... More

This is a place I would recommend to my fellow travelers....situated in the midst of a forest the area is serene and a nice place to hang out. After you visit the temple go to one of the nooks where it is quiet and peaceful. A nice place to chill out and relax away from the hub-dub of modernity.

Nice temple surrounded by great tree cover. The surroundings are pleasant and relaxing. It is only 2km from from Mall Road, Manali and best to trek up to it.
