There is an interesting story behind the name Giri Ganga. Long ago a sage toppled his ‘Ganga Jal’ pot while carrying it from Haridwar. Hence the name Giri Ganga
Giri Ganga dates back to the period of the Mahabharata and is believed to be constructed by Maharishi Ved Vyas. The temple is surrounded by dense deodar forests.
Rock Heaven is located right by the state highway that runs through the village of Mashobra on to Naldehra and beyond, the 4-storied structure clings to the cliff-side with the reception facing the road.
Naldehra, another of Lord Curzon’s legacies, is home to the country’s oldest and highest golf course. It gets its name from Nag + Dhera, Abode of the Snakes.
Before returning to London at the end of his mission as viceroy and then governor general of India, Lord Mountbatten and his wife Lady Edwina spent a few weeks in Mashobra.
