HIGHLIGHTS

Once a person of Shagogi village found three mohras of brass from under the earth in his field. The village priest told that these belonged to a Nag devta. The person started worshipping them. Slowly the villagers also became impressed of the miracles of the devta and they built a temple for him. Of the original three mohras one is placed on the rath and the other two are kept secret wrapped in clothes. It is believed that the person viewing the mohras may fall sick. Therefore they are not shown to anybody. The devta has nineteen mohras in all. The main mohra is named as Kuikanda Nag. Devta travels to Saryolsar on pilgrimage. Budhi Nagin of Saryolsar is the mother of Kui Kanda Nag.
