This is a small garden which had a huge role in our independence movement. The walls for the garden has information about the history. It has a small museum which has historical artifacts about the place and the events that took place on the unfaithful day in this very garden, Jallianwala Bagh.
Now the time was 3pm and we had a plan to visit the Wagah Border. But owing to the unrest on the borders the Wagah Border ceremony was cancelled indefinitely, so it was meaningless to go.
But if you plan to visit the Wagah Border ceremony, you will find plenty of cabs nearby the temple charging you 1000 bucks for the round trip. I guess the ceremony starts at around 5pm, you are expected to arrive and be seated by 4.30pm. The border is about 30kms away from the temple.
As we could not got go to Wagah Border we decided to head for Kasol on the same evening. On our way back to our rooms we had the famous Punjabi Lazzi and enquired about the buses plying to Kasol or Manikaran. We go lucky to find that there is a bus from the Amritsar bus stop which directly goes to Manikaran Gurudwara and departs at 5pm(this means we do not have to get a connecting bus to Chandigarh or even get drop at Bhuntar). We reached our room and packed our bags quicks and checked out of our room. Hired an auto to rush to the bus stop which was only 2 kms away, only to find that the bus arrives at 5.30pm and leave at 6pm for Manikaran. So we had to sit at the bus stop killing time, checking our photos at the temple. The bus arrived, we boarded paying the fare 550 Rs and knowing that this is a 12 hours long journey.
Day 2 : Parvati Valley
After a very bumpy and almost roller coaster like ride on the zig zag valley we reached Manikaran at 6am. The shift in temperature from last night was huge , here it was 10 - 11 degrees. We had our jackets on and were still shivering, as the mercury this low is very unlikely for us Mumbaikars.
Getting down from the bus we rushed into the gurudwara crossing a bridge on the river.
