SIRMUR

There is other principal Paras Ram a temple at villages Dugana, Masu and Jamdagan Hill, which are quite famous. The temple at Dugana has three stone and two brass images, the "Jhalla" which word literally means mad broke one of which. It is said that the God at times possesses a man who behaves in an abnormal manner and communicates with the devotees. Since the 'Jhalla" broke an image, a third stone image was brought from Rainka and installed.

As a God Paras Ram is rather tempera- mental. He could be angry and bring about poverty and sickness. He could bring cattle epidemic. If there is an unfulfilled vow to Him, he gets angry. But if he is pleased, he showers off-springs, prosperity and success. For worshipping Paras Ram, a pitcher has to be filled with water but according to tradition no shadow must fall on it while it is being filled. The Puja is done with the blowing of conches, lighting of lamps and offering of Bel leaves, rice and flowers.

The Paras Ram temple at Jamdagan Hill though dismal in appearance commands a superb view all around. From the top many streams look like silver streaks and the distant Dun valley and. the Dharthi range appear most attractive.One Ram Dass in fulfillment of a dream raised the Hanuman temple at Juhama (tahsil Pachhad).On Janmashtami day a small fair is held here.
