HIGHLIGHTS

Bhajhaaro devata is also known as Sesh Nag. It is said that he originated from a place called Khindrawai in village Kote. When a farmer was ploughing in his field, a mohra struck with his plough and came out from the soil. At the same time a voice was heard in the air that this is Bhajhaari devata and it should be established in village Kote. The farmer told this event to other villagers. The villagers built a temple and established this mohra in the temple and began to worship him. More temples of the devata were built in village Kanala and Deem. The devata has eight mohras.
