    Manali has its name rooted in the name of this bird, is that true? The capture is beautiful!

    1. Dear Priyanka thanks for comment but the fact is Manali is named after the Hindu lawgiver Manu. The word Manali is regarded as the changed name of “Manu-Alaya” which literally means “the abode of Manu”. Legend has it that sage Manu stepped off his ark in Manali to recreate human life after a great flood had deluged the world. Manali is also often referred to as the “Valley of the Gods”. The Old Manali village has an ancient temple dedicated to sage Manu

  3. Hi Vikas. Nice capture buddy. This bird is beautiful indeed. Just to let you know, Monal is no longer our state bird. It’s Jujurana also known as Wester Tragopan.

Many Many thanks for your visit and support comment :)
