BILASPUR

As usual there are many legends associated with Gnga Pir. One story is Dev Raj, a Chauhan Rajput had two wives Bachla and Kachla. Both were issueless. Bachla visited the shrine of Goraknath and got a bani (message) that she should come again to get a fruit and by eating it she will get a child. Kachla came to know about it and quickly impersonated Bachla, for the fruit and ate it.

Bachla visited the shrine later and after coming to know Kachla has already got the fruit was much disappointed. But she implored and got another fruit half of which she ate and the other half she gave to the mare she rode out of affection. Kachla had a daughter Gugri and Bachla a son, Guga, and the mare also had a foal. Gnga and the foal grew up together and were very fond of each other.

On attaining manhood Guga performed many miracles. He was always found on horse-back. People used to right to him on snake-bite and by his miraculous power Guga used to cure them. After death Guga was deified and worshipped.

Another legend runs thus: -

"In the ancient times the rana of Marudesh had two ranis named Kachla and Bachla, both sterile. The ranis were keen to have issues. At the same time there lived a, guru named Gorakh. Once the ranis went to the guru and requested him to grant a boon to enable them to have issues, The guru bade them to come the next day duly bathed and cleaned.
