NATH TEMPLES

Animal sacrifices have replaced human sacrifice, which was done at some places. Instead of buffaloes now goats are offered. The political and economical thrust on the houses of the Ruling Princes has affected the religious trends as temples are not being maintained as well, and no fresh endowments are being made.

It is a good feature that there has not been that rampant vandalism in the thefts of idols that we find in some other areas of North India. We also find a lesser degree of mutual isolation and a certain degree of variability as to religious trends among the social groups in more mountainous and isolated areas like Kinnaur or Lahul and Spiti and in those of a lesser-isolated Sirmur area.

The religious context in Sirmur area appears to be relatively homogeneous with other advanced areas of North India.
