FROM MOUNTAINS TO TEMPLES. 5 DAYS
The happy hippie’s enclave and snow sanctuary- Manali offers rich cultural and spiritual experience: wake up in the morning with a cup of chai and meditate in the fresh Himalayan air…
Why « From mountains to temples »?
The three rules of mountaineering say: “It’s always further than it looks. It’s always taller than it looks. And it’s always harder than it looks… Manali and Dharamshala open you a window to unseen Himalayas! After relaxing days,it is time for the cultural marvel-golden temple in Amritsar which survived violent history: The temple was built in a simple way, without many decorations…In the meantime Mughals, Afghans and the Indian Army attacked it in the 19th century… For many years the temple was ‘’sad’’ and forgotten by everybody… Fortunately Maharaja Ranjit Singh took finally care of the temple from all his heart: he covered the temple with gold coating, implemented marble panels and fixed the façade with metal…So, how does the temple looks nowadays?
