Hadimba Temple in Manali, Himachal Pradesh

An ancient cave temple surrounded by a cedar forest at the foot of the Himalayas, Hadimba temple is located in the hill station Manali in Himachal Pradesh. The temple is dedicated to Hidimba Devi, Pandava Bheem's wife, as depicted in the Mahabharata. Today, Hadimba Devi temple is a popular place of worship where thousands of tourists pay a visit. The temple has beautifully carved out wooden doors with the base of the temple made up of whitewashed stone. Three square roofs covered with timber tiles and a fourth brass cone-shaped roof at the top makes it different from any of the other temples. Hadimba temple in Himachal is a piece of art with its unique style of construction. Moreover, there is a temple nearby dedicated to Ghatotkacha, the son of Hidimba and Bhima.

History of Hadimba Temple:

Let’s go back to the days of Mahabharat. It’s said that when Pandavas escaped the ‘Lakh Palace’, and arrived in this area, Bheem fell in love with Hadimba. However, both of them could have married only after killing Hadimba’s brother, hence, they chose to live in the valley. As Bheem joined his brothers after a year, meanwhile their son Ghatotkacha born, and later he conquered the entire region.

Importance of Hadimba Temple: Constructed in 1553, it is said that Hidimba used to perform meditation in the cave where the Hadimba Temple is built. As she was very kind and gained some supernatural powers, people of the region dedicated this temple to her.

Festival Celebrations at Hadimba Temple: In Shravan month, a fair called Bahadur Singh Re Jatra is celebrated here every year to commemorate the contribution of Raja Bahadur Singh, who constructed this temple. And, on the 14th may of every year, another fair of music and dance is conducted to celebrate the birthday of Hadimba Devi.
