Mana - The last Indian Village
Jun 2020
By some quirk of fate (or perhaps human intervention), Mana has managed to retain it’s old world charm. It features quaint stone and mud houses lining the mountain walls. Clean to a fault, the village had the ubiquitous children playing cricket (what else!) and gnarled old women weaving in their verandahs. I Picked up a woollen sweater from the village shop. Not for the need of it, but simply because of how coarse the wool felt to the touch!

As we meandered through the village, at the far end was a shop grandly announcing itself to be ‘Bharat ki Aakhri chai ki dukaan’. Naturally, besides chai and maggi, he served glucose biscuits. The proprietor gladly obliged us with a picture. We had a cup of chai with glucose buscuits, and headed on to explore further.

A short climb higher up into the mountains got us to a cave complex of sorts. This is the Vyas Gufa or the Ganesh Gufa. Legend has it that this is the spot where Rishi Ved Vyas dictated the Mahabharat to Lord Ganesha. Each of them were perched in their respective caves. Whether there is any truth to those legends or not, the caves themselves have an aura to them. Unlike a deserted mountain cave, here there is a presence of sorts. It’s like there’s a purposeful energy to it, that one feels once in there.

After spending a lazy afternoon exploring Mana, we headed towards the source of the Saraswati river. ‘Source’ is a misleading word, since this refers to the starting point of the river. In this case, the Saraswati is visible for a distance of about 100 meters before she disappears underground again. Of course, you may believe the legend that Saraswati was too noisy for Rishi Vyasa’s liking, so he banished her underground and that’s where she stays to date. Or you may not. Fact is, the river disappears after 100 odd meters!

Bheem pul
Apr 2019
Bheem pul is situated in mana village which is half an hour drive from Badrinath. This bridge constructed by Bheem by placing a large stone block on the river saraswati. Pandavs went to their swargarohini yatra from this place. Few metre away is the place were draupadi fell and dies. Must visit if you are in badrinath.

Amazing structure
Oct 2019
It's an amazing rock structure with a mythological connect of being lifted by Bheem and put on top of Saraswati river to create a natural bridge on their way to heaven. Whatever be it's mythological background it is definitely worth a visit.

a great monolithic stone doubling as a bridge. Some marks seem to be hand and feet impressions of Bheem. A must visit at the origin of River Saraswati

A place associated with History

It is situated at Mana village, the last village in India near Badrinath. The place relates to Mahabharat kaal. So the big rock place across naturally is called Bhimpul. Other attractions are Ganesh gufa, Vyas gufa etc.

Historical Place, Mana Village
Aug 2019 • Friends
This place is in Mana Village. You can go this village by Personal Bolero from Badrinath Dham Temple. Guide is available there and he will charge just Rs 300/- per Group. Mr Anil is Guide,a native of this village and well aware of history. Bheem Pul is on the origin of Saraswati River. In Mahabharat when Dropadi is unable to cross this river then Bhim put this Shilpa on river and she crossed it.
