From a sleepy town before the 20th century to one of the most visited places, Manali emerged as a resort town nestled in the mountains. According to Hindu mythology, a flood dissipated the world. Manu, the only human left recreated mankind in this valley. Hence the name, Manali, evolved from Manu-Alaya referring to “the abode of Manu”. To pray deeds to such a sage, old Manali village also has an ancient temple dedicated to sage Manu.
