SheshaNag gave rise to a flow of boiling water till now the jeweal continued to be thrown up in water.Manikaran name is based on Mani+karan where parvati lost her ear mani. The water of the spring is also full of curative powers.


As per sikh,s the gurunanak dev ji came here in 1575 with bhai mardana and bhai bala .when their disciples felt hungry guru nanak dev ji send them to collect lunger (food) .usually people donate flour and vegetables there for sangat ,but no fire there to cook food ,then guru nanak dev ji put the rolled roti in to hot spring and the roti comes up and start floating . then guru nanak ji told to sangat that who donate in the name of god his drowned things come back and float.till now the three time langer( rise,vegitabels and dal) is cooked in hotspring water. The water is so hot that rice for the “langar” is cooked by putting it into a linen-bag and dipping it into the boiling water.
