Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Mandi'
• 750 metres (2,460 ft)
Mandi (old name Mandav Nagar), also known as Sahor (Tibetan: Zahor), is a city and a municipal council in Mandi district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is situated 145 kilometres (90 mi) north of state capital, Shimla.
Legend has it that the Great Sage 'Mandav' prayed in this area, and the rocks turned black due to the severity of his penance, so the town was referred to as Mandvya Nagari in his honour. Mandi has at least 81 ancient Shaivite temples.
Other authors believe that the name 'Mandi,' is simply derived from the common word mandi which means "market" in Hindi "and it may possibly be connected with the Sanskrit root mandaptika, meaning "an open hall or shed, . . ." It was, until the mid 20th century, on the trade route between Yarkand and Ladakh to Hoshiarpur and the Indian plains.
Mandi has an average elevation of 750 metres (2,461 feet). It is built on the banks of the Beas River, at the confluence of the Suketi Khad stream.See more...
