BILASPUR

Naina Devi temple and its surroundings had a tragedy recently. In the last week of August, 1978 due to heavy rains for days together there were landslides and about hundred acres of land below the Naina Devi temple caved in and villages below were very badly affected. More than hundred houses were buried.

Geological experts made an investigation after the landslides. The steps to the temple were buried and the temple could be reached only through katcha-road. The small township around Naina Devi temple was cut off from water supply as the electric motors pumping water upto the temple and the township were buried.

According to the geological investigation there is no immediate danger to the temple. But steps have to be taken. It is understood that a check-dam at the back of the temple would be built as a support. The villages Bharai and Bhagaran down below were very badly affected along with the township.

It is said that there was not much of firm rock underneath the Ghumanad area of Naina Devi temple and the loose earth started slipping along this slope causing the landslide. Every step has been promised to be taken by the authorities to save the 1300 year-old temple located at an altitude of 3,995 feet above sea level at the top of a hillock.
