A place of beauty, a place of pilgrimage
Rewalsar has long been a traveller's secret just off the beaten track in Himachal Pradesh. Pilgrims come to make prayers, meditate or simply soak up the peaceful atmosphere.
At its heart lies the holy lake that is home to three Hindu Temples, a Sikh Gurudwara and three Buddhist Monasteries. One of the local names for Rewalsar is Trisangam (Three Holy Communities) and as such it serves as a fine example of religious tolerance and harmony that makes India great.
Pilgrims take the road above Rewalsar to the beautiful village of Sarkidhar, set in a valley with seven holy lakes and summited by the holy temple of Naina Dev-Ji, the foremost Hindu temple in the area. In the hills below Naina Devi Temple, modern day Tibetan yogis and yoginis live and practice in caves.
The villages surrounding Rewalsar are set in some of the most beautiful landscapes in Himachal Pradesh.
