One comment on “Mandi”

I am from Mandi Himachal Pradesh. Mandi is the cultural capital of Himachal Pradesh. The people of Mandi are informally called Mandyalis. The International Mandi Shivaratri Fair is a fair held in Mandi for seven days in March yearly. The celebration of Shivratri of Mandi is said to have started in the year 1526 to commemorate the foundation of present-day Mandi. Before this, the capital of Mandi was on the right bank of the river Beas, which is now known as Old Mandi (Purani Mandi). Mandi hosts a half marathon yearly.
