Himachal Pradesh




The Rewalsar visit of the tenth Guru was a great occasion as he came from Anandpur Sahib and camped for sometime preach- ing.The Rajas of Srinagar(Garhwal) Chamba, Nadaun, Mandi, Karamgarh, Kangra, Kutler, Jaswan, Bushair, Kulu, Kuinthal etc., visited the Guru and heard his preachings. Subsequently the Ranis and other ladies also paid their homage and received blessings from him. On his return journey he halted at Mandi.

Regarding the Siva temple at Rewalsar it said that Maharishi Lomas had meditated for several thousand years at Rewalsar. Lord Siva was pleased with his tapashya and asked him if he wanted a boon. Lomas desired that Lord Siva should have a permanent abode at that place. Lord Siva agreed, and hence Rewalsar is very sacred to the Saivaites.

The Siva temple on the Western Side of the tank is very old though the exact age is difficult to ascertain. It is built on the Shikhara style. It is said the ancient name was Lomashsar and later on, the name was converted to Rewalsar or Rewalsar.
