The visiting deities are given a ceremonial bath. The second chapter of Brahm
Puran recites the story of Mani Karan as given above. The place is described as one of hot
and cold waters and the divine pair had repaired there for water sports (Jal-Krida).
Fragrant and attractive flowers graced the place and by a bath at the Sangam (confluence)
one is eternally blessed. The Brahm-Puran enjoins the pilgrims pass a night awake at Mani
Karan and do puja (Raat-Jagran).
Thereby the pilgrims obtain the full virtue of
the world. The story of the loss of the jewel and the frantic search and ultimate recovery
is vividly described. The tract is Lord Siva's own and a pilgrimage at this place is
adequate and one need not visit Kashi (Varanasi) and other places of pilgrimage. The place
is also held sacred by the Sikhs. The Janam Sakhi (Twarikh Guru Khalsa) by Giani Gian
Singh mentions about the visit of Guru Nanak Dev to this place.
It has been mentioned that accompanied by his
disciple Bhai Mardana, the Guru reached Jwalamukhi temple after visiting Kalanaur,
Gurdaspur, Dasuya, Triloknath, Palampur and Kangra. The Guru then proceeded towards Mandi
and aftervisiting Chamba and Kulu he came to Bijli Maha- dev. At all these places Guru
Nanak Dev had preached. Then he came to Mani Karan. The Janam Sakhi (Autobiography of Bhai
Mardana) mentions the miracles did by the Guru.
