BASISHTA

In the second one, the temperature is a little lower yet too for a bath. The third one has comparatively more temperature water and more popular in use by the villagers. The name of Beas has been taken after Basishta Muni. Cunningham in his book.

'Journal of a Trip Through Kogloo' mentions that according to tradition the saint Basishta became weary of life, tied his hands and feet together and threw himself into the river. The river would not have him, the knots had burst and he was floated to the bank safe.

This story, however, does not appear in any old book and appears a touched up story. There is no reason to think Basishta Muni should think of committing suicide. Just above Manali the village Basishta stands.

Cunningham mentions :-

"The valley of the Beas closes in; and the gneiss rocks which have been thrust up through the Mica-slate are scrapped on both sides of the -valley forming apposing cliffs; which rise to a high somewhat greater than the level of Manali and Basishta Muni."
