Saraswati River at Mana gorge, India

In Hindu mythology, as Ved Vyasa was recounting the Mahabharata to Lord Ganesha, the river Saraswati was disturbing them as it was too noisy. Lord Ganesha and Ved Vyasa had agreed that the tale would not be narrated more than once. Ved Vyasa made the mighty Saraswati river disappear underground ( a fact that has been confirmed by topographical analysis now ). The huge volume of water in the River Saraswati at a place called Mana Gorge in Mana village is the exact place where the huge volume of the turbulent Saraswati are not visible on the other side of the gorge. There is a permanent rainbow over the river at this point!!!!! The two ancient caves where Ved Vyasa and Lord Ganesha sat down for this epic historical saga are also nearby, I have written about them in separate blogs.

The waters of the Saraswati River at Mana Gorge …..the sheer volume and sound and the permanent rainbow are breathtakingly beautiful……


Beyond the gorge, the cascading and turbulent waters disappear….there is no water visible…..though we searched for a glimpse…the sound disappears too…
