Nice temple of Lord Ganesha situated in a cave . About 2 Kms from Sri Badrinath. Legend has it ,that Ved Vyas rishi requested Lord Ganesha to remove all obstacles so that he could write the epic Mahabharata here.

Need to trek to reach this place. This place belongs to lord ganesha. Here ganesha wrote the epic mahabharata with the help of sage vyas. This is best if done with vyas gufa.

This is a small cave located in Mana village where Lord Ganesha had written the ‘Mahabharata’ as dictated by Vyas Muni. Some trekking exercise is required to reach this point which is located at elevation.

This is where Lord Ganesh took down the Mahabharata as dictated by Veda Vyasa. He had to write only after understanding everything that he heard. This was a counter condition when he demanded that Veda Vyasa should not stop dictating.

It is located inside Mana village. It is the place where you would arrive first after entering the village. Not a big temple. just a small cave, where, it is said, the Vyasa composed the Vedas as per Lord Ganesha's instruction.
