Location Details

Mangi-Tungi is described as Siddhakshetra which means it is a gateway to the state of enlightenment. Lord Krishna breathed his last & jettisoned his material body in the same area. It is further believed that his elder brother Balram, came out of the state of deep mourning after Lord Krishna's death & received paramadnyana, ultimate knowledge which further helped him attain enlightenment at Mungi Tungi. It is stated in the puranas that the last rites of Lord Krishna were performed by his brother here. A great festival on the mountains is celebrated every year in the holy month of Kartik (September-October) when Hindus & Jains converge in large numbers to witness the grand Rathyatra.

Phenomenal site. During monsoon the view of the stairs to Tungi seems like these are Stairways to Heavens. Start with Tungi when you are fresh.
