THE BACKGROUND OF THE TEMPLES IN HIMACHAL PRADESH

Every religious festivity has its own religious songs eulogizing the particular  deity. Janmashtami, Shivratri and Ramnavami bring- forth full-throated hymns and songs in praise of -Krishna' Siva and Rama. The famous Naina Devi and Jwalamukhi have their own religious hymns. The festival songs are preserved from mouth to mouth. In Nawala festival held in honor of Siva, the Gaddis offer long prayers in verse known as Ainchalis. It is a legend about the origin of the Universe explained in a simplistic manner.

Folk and ritual dances in Himachal also have got a strong religious flavor. The Kinnauris and the Gandharvas have been depicted as great singers and dancers in Pauranik legends. This tradition is still being retained. The music, songs, and dances of Kinnaur, Lahul and Spiti are all associated with religion. Even the folk arts in woodcarving, paintings, embroideries etc., have a religious background.
