Manali
One day, Varvasvata, the seventh incamaiton of Manu found a tiny fish in his bathing water. The fish told him to look after it with devotion for one day it would do him a great service. The seventh Manu cared for the fish till the day it grew so huge that he released it into the sea. Before departing. The fish warned Manu of an impending deluge When the entire world would be submerged and bade him to build a sea worthy ark. When the flood came varvasvata and seven sages were towed to safety by Matsya, the fish-which is regarded as first avatara of Lord Vishnu. As the water subsided the seventh Manu's ark came to the rest on a hillside and the place was named Manali (2050m) after him.
