SIRMUR

Bija, however, did not take this false step and reached his house in safety, and concealed the image in his granary, which was nearly empty. When he opened the granary in the morning it was full to overflowing. Bija fell senseless at this miracle and was revived only by the sacrifice of eighteen he-goats, Then one of the three gods took possession of a man, who began to nod his head repeatedly saying he was Bijat, the god, and could not remain in Tatwa, as it was not becoming for him to live with his sisters. So the image of Bijat was sent to Saran in Chopal tahsil of Mahasu district where it still remains.

The people of Tatwa then separated, dividing their property, some going to settle in Kandi, and the others remaining in Tatwa. The image of the goddess Bijat fell to the men of Kandi, and is now at Barol of Dasakna "Bhoj (group of villages in charge of a "Siana" or" Ala"-lambardar), while Ghatriali remained at Tatwa and her temple was established at Panjaha in Tikri "Bhoj" (group of villages in charge of a Siana or Ala-lambardar).

There is a temple to Devi Jawala Mukhi (goddess of the flaming mouth) at Lana Rauna, concerning which the following legend is told. Mahant Tawar Nath and the Devi met at Hardwar, where they had gone to bathe, and, when leaving, the 'Mahant' asked the Devi when he should meet her again. The goddess promised to meet him after two years at Rauna, and duly manifested herself in his mouth, but the 'Mahant', being unaware of her advent, struck his mouth and thus caused the goddess to flee from him.
