One day, Varvasvata, the seventh incarnation of
Manu found a tiny fish in his bathing water. The
fish told him to look after it with devotion as
one day it would do him a great service. The seventh
Manu cared for the fish till the day it grew so
huge that he released it into the sea.
Before departing, the fish
warned Manu of an impending deluge when the entire
world would be submerged and bade him to build
a sea worthy ark. When the flood came, Varvasvata
and seven sages were towed to safety by Matsya,
the fish which is regarded as first avatar of
Lord Vishnu. As the water subsided the seventh
Manu's ark came to the rest on a hill side and
the place was named Manali (2050 m) after him.
As the flood
slowly dried, here arose a place of breath- taking
natural beauty which was only appropriate at Manali
that life began again. Today this legendary cradle
of all human kind is a prime holiday destination.
There are high mountains surrounded by snow and
deep boulder strewn gorges. There are thick forests
full of cool breeze and bird songs. There are fields
of wild flowers, small picturesque hamlets and fruit
