THE LEGEND AS HOW IDOL- WORSHIP BEGAN

The convention of all the eighteen gods is at village Nagar. The spot is known, as 'Jagti'. AlI the gods of the Kulu are taken to Nagar valley regularly and Yajnas are held. Whenever a calamity befalls the country, the gods of Kulu get together at 'Jagti'. This meet is called 'Jagti Poochh'.

This ceremony of a convention of Gods is indigenous to Kulu valley. If there is a calamity there is a special 'Jagti' and the cause of the calamity is divined and Yajna, puja and sacrifice take steps. Some of the devotees fast when 'Jagti' is held.

A large rectangular flat stone known as Singhashan is shown where the main God is supposed to take his seat. The stone is so heavy that in the legend mentions the gods themselves in the shape of honey-bees carried the stone from Bharighutung mountain about 10 miles away.
