Parvati valley is one of the safest places in Himachal Pradesh. It is even said that Lord Shiva himself meditated in this place for thousands of years. This place is spiritually blessed with abundant mysticism around it.
Kheerganga or Kheer Ganga refers to the Ganga River (the Ganges River) as white as a Kheer (an Indian sweet dish made from milk and Rice). The name Kheerganga came due to the milky waters of the river flowing in all its vastness and its streams flowing into Parvati valley from all sides of the mountain.
According to the locals, it was the time when Lord Shiva asked their son Karthikey and Ganesh to travel around the world. Lord Ganesh thinking that the whole world lies at His parent’s feet, He circumferenced around them (Shiva and Parvati), while Lord Karthikey embarked on His journey of the world tour. Impressed by Ganesha’s wit, Shiva made him the king. Years after Karthikey returned home, He saw that Ganesh was made the king and was enjoying all the powers and facilities He had expected being an elder brother.
Frustrated and angry, He went to the cave (which is in Kheerganga) for deep meditation. Later, Shiva and Parvati came here to take Kartikeya home. Out of love for his son, Goddess Parvati made the kheer (rice pudding) flow from the mountain (kheer-ki-Ganga which translates to the river of rice pudding). Later lord Parshuram, on realizing the oncoming of kalyug and that there could be a conflict among the people, stopped the kheer and what remained is the hot water. Even now, one can see the white rubber-like particles (malai) along with the hot flowing water. The water remains hot throughout the year and is said to be rich in natural minerals and can cure stomach related disorders. Lord Shiva liked this place so much that he decided to stay here. It is said that Lord Shiva himself meditated here for thousands of years.
