KINNAUR

Some of the godlings have temples with declining prestige. Nabo village said to have been set up by one Nab in the service of a Raja of Tibet in the midst of beautiful Hangrang Valley, has the village deity Deodom and several other idols in a temple. Prayer wheels are kept in other structures and water is offered in seven cups every night. Namgya village in pargana Shua on the left bank of Sutlaj River has four local godlings Dabla, Chola, Bushahru, Kuldeo Narain.

The village Puh, in pargana Shua has also the local deity Dabla but without any temple. The small idol is adorned with yak-tail-hair and long pieces of coloured cloth. The entire piece is called Fobrang. The village Sangrang also in pargana Shua has the village deity Yulsa in a temple. There is an ark with a dozen marks for the deity and the deity is taken out to houses of illness or where a son is born. Animal sacrifice,to this deity has beenabandoned. These local deities appear to be fading out. Some of them are Buddhist in origin and some Hindu.
