SIRMUR

There are also temples dedicated to Hanuman, Sita, Ram., Shiva, Devi, Ganesh and Nag. The Devi cult deities are quite a few. We have temples of Naina Devi, Durga, La Devi, Bhadrakali Devi, Kali, Bhangain Devi, Kudan Devi, Similasan Devi, Balasundri Devi, Nai Devi and Tribhavani Devi. We have already referred to the Rainka fair where the famous temple of Rainka Devi is located and attracts thousands of pilgrims every year.

The manifestations of the Mother cult divinities as mentioned are quite a few. So there are also a number of Vishnu cult temples. This makes us bold that Shiva, Shakti and Vishnu are really the three principal Divinities that have their hold on this district. There are various legends about some of the temples of Shirigul, Mahasu, Paras Ram and Thakurdwara temples.

There are also legends associated with the temples of Jawala Mukhi, Rainka Devi, Nag etc., and some of them will be mentioned. Besides the temples of these well, known Divinities we have a number of temples, big or small, belonging to a few other cults probably, more or less, indigenous to the area. There are cults of Pap or Papra, Bhat, Gugga Pir and Nath. There are temples belonging to these cults.
