KULU-MANALI

According to legend Gara-Durga Devi was the daughter of a high caste Thakur of Dethua village in Kothi Kot. A mason of Bandal pleased the Thakur immensely by some work and the Thakur promised that he would be given any reward he wanted. The mason impudently wanted Gara, the Thakur's beautiful daughter.

The Thakur was nonplussed but he had to satisfy his conscience by presenting the daughter to the low caste mason. The girl Gara was extremely unhappy at her fate and wept bitterly sitting by the bank of the Tirthan river near Bandal village. The river goddess was moved and took her down and she was, henceforth, worshipped as a Devi.
