Description
Built on a slight rise, with a commanding view of both the lake and the valley below, Himachal Tourism runs Tourist Inn at Rewalsar. Its presence enables every visitor to truly savor the beauty and ambiance of this enchanting spot.

It is located on a mountain spur, and an hour`s drive from Mandi to reach this dark jewel like lake. With water, woodland and high hills, it presents a variety of natural beauty. The spot is sacred for Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. Known to the Tibetans as Guru Rimpoche, the Precious Master, it was under Padmasambahava`s influence that Mahayana Buddhism spread over Tibet. There are islands of floating reed on Rewalsar lake and the spirit of Padmasabhava is said to reside in them. It is here that the sage Lomas did penance in devotion to Lord Shiva, and the Sikh Guru Gobind Singh also resided here for one month.
