About Hadimba temple & Jogini Waterfall
Hadimba temple: The Hidimba Devi temple is built around a cave where Hidimba performed meditation. Hidimba was supposed to have lived there with her brother Hidimb, and not much is known about their parents. Born into a Rakshas family, Hidimba vowed to marry one who would defeat her brother Hidimb, who was supposed to be very brave and fearless. During the Pandava’s exile, when they visited Manali; Bhima, one of the five Pandavas, killed Hidimb. Thereafter, Hidimba married Bhima and gave birth to their son Ghatotkacha.– Wikipedia
Jogini Waterfall: This is nearly 3 KM trek from Vashisht temple. Vashisht temple is 2 KM from Main market area of Manali and you can reach parking area of temple in 15 minutes by vehicle. After visiting the Vashisht temple complex you can start the trek. A gentle walk will take 30 minutes to reach the base of the waterfall. Small stretch of up slope will be there near the waterfall. While travelling you can see Beas river and snow peaks of Rohtang at your left side. Yogini mata temple is at the base of the waterfall. From here if you can climb then can reach the top point of the waterfall. The stiff climb will take 20 minutes more to reach at top. If you don’t want to climb up then towards your right side through narrow path you can reach the base of the waterfall. Here there is small pool formed by the falling water and here you can take bath and spend some time. Or simple spend your time near temple and watch the waterfall. In the temple there is provision for the devotees to offer Mundan or tonsure and take food in available stone plates. —Go2india.in
