Rewalsar Lake

rewalsar-lakeRewalsar Lake - 1360 m above sea level.

Location - In district Mandi, 24 kms from Mandi town. 

Shaped quite like a square and with a shoreline of 735m, this dark jewel rests on a mountains spur and is protected by a variety of dense vegetation. The spot is held sacred by Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists alike. Legend has it that the great teacher and 'tantric', Padmasambhava used his enormous powers to take 'flight' to Tibet from Rewalsar. Also known as Guru Rimpoche, the Precious Master, it was under Padmasambhava's influence that Mahayana Buddhism took root in Tibet - and at Rewalsar's waters, his spirit is said to reside in the clusters of floating-reed that drift over the waters. There are three Buddhist monasteries at Rewalsar. Seeking to replicate the destroyed statues of Bamiyan, a huge statue of the Buddha is also being built at Rewalsar.

Commemorating the month-long stay of Guru Gobind Singh in 1738, Rewalsar has a Gurudwara that was buit in 1930 by Raja Joginder Sen of Mandi. Rewalsar has three Hindu temples which are dedicated to Lord Krishna, Lord Shiva and to the sage Lomas.

The lake of Kunt Bhyog (1750 m above sea level) lies above Rewalsar.
