Temple for couples and lovers – Shangchul Mahadev

dsc_0912

Kullu Valley is called the ‘Valley of Gods’ but I had not even heard about this village called Shangarh. Shangchul Mahadev Temple( 6300 FEET) in Sainj Valley.  Sangchul Mahadev Blesses especially to them who have been Abandoned by society and shower his blessing to the romantic couples.

FRONT VIEW OF SHANGHUL MAHADEV (PARVATI VALLEY): The Shangchul Grounds are one of the finest pine savannas you will ever see. Located in Shangher Village (शांघड़ ) of Sainj Valley of Kullu Region, this grassland actually lies in the heart of the Great Himalayan National Park’s (GHNP) Western boundary.

Pandava’s actually fine sieved the soil before laying them in layers for the construction of this ground. And this ground is literally free from any boulder or stone mass.

The Pandavas are believed to have stuck these stones in the ground to divide the meadows into two parts… One half for the cattle and one half for the Gods.

HOW TO VISIT SHANGCHUL MAHADEV:

FIRST YOU HAVE TO REACH SHANGARH: Take a Kullu-Manali bound bus and get down at Aut. Get a bus to Neuli via Sainj. From there it is around 10 KMS.

 

What is the right season to reach Shangarh?
All seasons have their own charm. The summer is, of course, the easiest to reach. I think the roads will be slippery in the rain. Winters may also be too cold but the snowy landscape has its own attraction.

 

What are the accommodation options in Shangarh? 
You can stay at the place mentioned above, i.e. Ranaji’s Homestay that doesn’t yet have a proper name. But it is located very near to the grounds and the Shangchul ji Temple. Also, I think some more homestays are coming up in the region. You can also consider the GHNP guesthouse just before Neuli.
