Introduction

Basishta village on the left bank of river Beas about 2 miles to the north of Manali town and on the Manali-Key long main road has a legend behind it.

It is believed to be the place where Basishta Muni, the Guru of the Pandava brothers lived and had his hermitage. The village has two temples. In the first one, which is more recent, Sri Ramchandra is the presiding deity.

The second temple much more ancient is that of Basishta Muni after whom this village is named. This is a timber-bonded stone temple and the site was the hermitage of the Muni according to legend.
