History

Ancient history and settlement.

Manali has derived its name from Manu, The Sanatan Dharm Lawgiver, basically meaning ‘Manu-Alaya’ – ‘the home of Manu’. According to legend, after a great flood had stricked manali, Manu recreated human life here. Thus, it also has an ancient temple dedicated to him in Old Manali. Manali lies in the North Kullu Valley. Which is often known as the ‘Valley of the Gods’.

Initially, there were no apple trees in the area but Britishers first grew an apple orchard hence introduced apple trees in the area. Apple tree proved a blessing because since then apple,plum and pear became the best income source for the inhabitants.
