Situated a few Kilo Meters further away from Sudh Mahadev, Mantalai is surrounded by lush deodar forests at an altitude of 2000 m.
The ashram was founded by Shri Dharinder Bramhchari, and was developed as a yoga and spiritual centre. Presently no activity is taking place in the said area.
Mantalai is also known for the Aparna Ashram of late Swami Dharinder Brahamchari Ji, who raised multi‐million infrastructure in the shape of hostels, hotels, helipad, gardens, Yoga research lab, Gau‐Shalas, wide roads, swimming pools and Cinema halls etc. The Ashram has almost turned into ruins and there are no further signs of development at this place. Also here at Mantalai, the marriage of Lord Shiva with Goddess Parvati took place. The Hawan Kund has now turned into a big Pond, nearby the old historic temple of Mantalai. People in thousands take holy bath and worship in the nearby temple.
