About Manimahesh

The name Manimahesh signifies a jewel (Mani) on Lord Shiva’s (Mahesh’s) crown. Local people claim that the moon-rays reflected from the jewel can be seen from Manimahesh Lake on clear full-moon nights (which are a rare occasion). It is more likely to be the light reflected from the glacier that adorns the peak, like a serpent on Shiva’s neck.
