Kullu Tour

Kullu was once known as Kulanthpitha, which means the end of the habitable world. Beyond rose the forbidding heights of the Greater Himalayas, and by the banks of the shining river Beas, lay the fabled ‘Silver Valley’.

Here is the core of an intricate web of numerous valleys – each of which is a visual delight and seems more beautiful than the other. The mountain scapes remain spectacular whether in brilliant sunshine or in the haze of the mist. The ‘Silver Valley’ has nature’s treasures that lie carelessly scattered as flowers on the high meadows.

The town of Kullu has long been a centre of faith. In the 17th century, Raja Jagat Singh installed here an idol of Lord Raghunathji, which he brought from Ayodhya. As a mark of his penance, he placed the idol on his throne and it became the presiding deity of the valley.

Raghunath Temple :
Raghunath Temple is the most famous of Kullu’s attractions. The temple is dedicated to Lord Ram, the patron deity of Kullu and the world-famous Dussehra festival that is held in Kullu is done so in his honour. Raghunath Temple is special because the statue of Lord Raghunath is said to be the same one that Lord Ram used for his Ashwamedha Yajna and was brought all the way from Tretnath temple of Ayodhyaya. As the story goes, Raja Jagat Singh drank the water used to wash the feet of the idol for 42 days and in doing so was freed from a Brahmins curse and forgiven for his wrongdoings. The temple is built in a mixture of Pahari and Pyramidal styles and was constructed in 1660 AD. Arti is performed here five times a day and 45 festivals are held here every year. So even as you feel every knot of tension ease away in Kullu, be careful not to miss a visit to RaghunathTemple in Kullu.
