Manali, Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh is called Devbhumi. The culture and civilization of Kullu attracts the people of the country.
Here people have great faith in Gods and Goddesses and God’s orders are considered paramount. Gaushals coming along with Manali and 8 adjacent villages will now be able to go to Soomsan for one and a half months. No sound will be heard here.
In this village, neither TV, mobile nor temple bell will ring. Visitors coming here also have to follow the rules. It may sound a little strange, but it’s the truth. Nine villages in Manali’s Uzi Valley are still following the Deva tradition that has been going on for thousands of years. In the historic village of Gaushal, once again TVs have been switched off since Makar Sankranti.
Also the mobile phone will be put in silent mode. Also no one can talk loudly here. In the next one and a half months, there will be no agricultural work, apart from the worship in the temple, the bell will also be closed. In fact, this order has come from the adorable deity Gautama Rishi, Vyasa Rishi and Naga deity here and this order has to be followed by the people for the next one and a half months.
Villages of Gaushal, Kodhi, Solang, Palchan, Ruad, Kulang, Nashnag, Burua and Mazach villages of Manali have maintained the Dev tradition. The younger generation is also following the centuries-old tradition. Hari Singh, Kardar, Gautam Rishi says that this tradition has been going on for centuries and even today the tradition is being carried out.
