Volcanoes erupt when molten rock called magma rises to the surface.
When a part of the earth’s upper mantle or lower crust melts, magma forms . A volcano is essentially an opening or a vent through which this magma and the dissolved gases it contains are discharged.

Main reasons for volcano Eruption : The buoyancy of the magma, the pressure from the exsolved gases in the magma and the injection of a new batch of magma into an already filled magma chamber.

The Eruption temperature of lava is aprox about 1,170 degrees Celsius (2,140 degrees Fahrenheit). In general, temperatures range from about 4,400° Celsius (7,952° Fahrenheit) to about 6,000° Celsius (10,800° Fahrenheit). The core is made of two layers: the outer core, which borders the mantle, and the inner core. The boundary separating these regions is called the Bullen discontinuity.

During Navaratri all Hindus across the nation worship goddess Durga, but people in Manali worship Hidimba Devi.

Hidimbi was a demoness, who fell in love with Bhima when he took shelter in a forest along with his four brothers and mother. The Pandava brothers – Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva – along with their mother Kunti were in exile when they came in contact with Hidimbi, the sister of a demon named Hidimba. He was killed by Bhima and this is recounted in the 9th sub-parva (Hidimba-vadha Parva) of the Adi Parva.

After the death of her brother, Hidimba wanted to marry Bhima. Bhima refused and wanted to kill Hidimba as well, but Kunti interfered.

Kunti’s acceded to Hidimba’s proposal, but on one condition. Once She had a child from Bhima, She must allow Bhima to leave her and join Pandavas.

Within a year, Hidimbi gives birth to a huge half-rakshasa son, who is named Ghatotkacha, because his bald head looks like a pot. Ghatotkacha greatly loves the Pandavas and they are enamored with him.
