Bijli Mahadev is a sanctuary committed to master Shiva. At a height of 2452 meters, the sanctuary ignores Parvati valley. This sanctuary is one of a kind on the grounds that the ‘Shiva-Lingam’ in the sanctuary is once in a while struck by lightning and it breaks into pieces. The acting cleric at that point utilizes margarine as a cement to assemble the lingam.

The sanctuary is named after this normal marvels, where”Bijli” alludes to lightning and “Mahadev” is one of the names for ruler Shiva. The trek to Bijli Mahadev sanctuary is a simple 3-kilometer move from Chansari Village. The town lies 24 kilometers east of Kullu (H.P.). The course is very much stamped and it is part shake and part concrete. The trail starts as a firm ascension yet it backs out into a delicate move after the main kilometer.

There are three convincing explanations behind a winter trek to Bijli Mahadev sanctuary. The principal reason has to do with the entrancing perspective from the sanctuary. The sanctuary is arranged on an edge that ignores the Parvati valley. On a fresh winter morning the sun illuminates Parvati Valley in shades of blue. The valley is particularly charming in light of the fact that the Parvati waterway cuts a wandering way through these monumental mountains.

Finding the sanctuary’s legacy is the second purpose behind making this trek. The sanctuary’s inward sanctum is cut in wood. These excellent and exact carvings portray characteristic and legendary scenes. Particularly worth survey is the sanctuary entryways that hand painted in common and quieted hues. These hues add show and allure to the wood carvings.

The stone figures outside the sanctuary, rival the wood carvings of the inward sanctum. The “Nandi” bull is particularly similar and worth a more intensive look. Winters are the off-crest season at Bijli Mahadev. Just a couple of local people make it up the slope and the shops were shut. This is the ideal time to find the different aspects of the sanctuary in peacefulness.

Trek Details

The trek to Bijli Mahadev begins from Chansari town. Chansari town lies 24 kilometers east from Kullu (H.P.) and is open by open transport and taxi. The metalled street closes at this town. The strolling course begins as a limited strolling trail wandering through the town. The trail at that point transforms into a solid way similarly as the town closes. This solid way twists tough through a kilometer of Deodar and Firs.

The underlying trip is firm, yet the trail slips into a delicate move after the main kilometer. Amid winters, the lush segment might be elusive with dark ice, hence drop cautiously. A little holy place in the forested areas denotes the midpoint of this trek (see GPS waypoints). The trail rises up out of the forested areas at the edge line beneath the sanctuary. A couple of shacks (shut in winters) dab the edge beside a lake (solidified in winters) now. The sanctuary is at the highest point of this edge, a short move from the solidified lake.
