NATH TEMPLES

There is a legend that once Rajah Mahi Parkash (16591678 A.D.) of Sirmur mounted an attack on the erstwhile Keonthal State (now included in Mahasu district), but was repulsed with heavy loss. Mahi Parkash, on enquiry, found that the Chief of Keonthal was being helped by a Muhammedan mendicant who was shielding the Keonthal army with a miraculous sheet which missiles could not pierce.

Hearing of this, his Ranee advised Rajah Mahi Parkash to invoke the blessing of Mahant Tawarnath's successor named Balgir. The Rajah accordingly went to village Thor and caused the Mahant to accompany him during a second attack on Keonthal. This time the Rajah succeeded in subduing the Keonthal Chief and in gratitude to the Mahant, who had made the Muhammedan mendicant's magic ineffective, the Rajah desired the prior to ask for anything he wanted.
