Last ruler of Uttarakhand was ?
Harsh Dev Joshi
Manabendra (Manavendra) Shah was the last Maharajah of Tehri Garhwal before the princely state joined the newly independent India in 1947. He succeeded to the throne when his father Narendra Shah abdicated throne (on health grounds) on 26 May 1946. Manavendra Shah known as 'Bolanda Badri' (living incarnation of Lord Vishnu) was the 61st guardian of the temple of Badrinath in Garhwal. After serving on the Burma front during the Second World War, Manavendra Shah ruled the 4,800-square mile only Tehri Garhwal kingdom from 1946 until 1949, but was proud of having been one of the first to sign the Instrument of Accession, which he had helped to negotiate, with the Indian government. After Indian independence, he was a long-serving member of the Indian parliament, first as a Congress party MP and later as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP. He represented Tehri eight times in the Lok Sabha. Manavendra Shah also served as ambassador to Ireland from 1980 to 1983.
