Bijli Mahadev – Temple of Lightning

Bijli Mahadev Temple, as the name suggests is the temple of Lord Shiva, where almost every year lightning strikes the Shiva Linga and breaks into pieces. Then the priest of the temple rejoins the pieces of Lingam with the help of butter and other adhesive. Because of this lightning and rejoining process, Bijli Mahadev is also called Temple of Lightning. 
The place where the temple is situated is called Mathana (7874 ft.). The beautiful temple is surrounded by lush green meadows.
The statue and idol near the temple are also the main attraction of tourist who came here from all across the world. And in the month of Saawan (one of the Hindu month) people offer ghee, butter, and milk to these idols and worship Lord Shiva.
Panoramic view of Manaikaran, Kullu and Lug Valley from the temple catches lots of eyes.
Temple is easily approachable from Kullu. 14km of the motorable road from Kullu to Chansari Village and from Chansari 2km trek in the shadow of tall pine trees. And one who cannot trek can come from Naggar to Bijli Mahadev road via Janna Waterfall. Bijli Mahadev is around 70 kilometers from Manali.
