Mandi has many Ghats along river Beas with lot of religious and cultural significance. These ghats are deeply interwoven in the religious culture of Mandi. But due to coming up of Pandoh Dam at a distance of about 20 Kms upstream Beas river these ghats have dried up and are dying slow death because of encroachment. The traditional sources of water like Bawadis have also dried up because of neglect and disuse. Its time to act before itâ€™s too late.
