HIGHLIGHTS

Once a person of Turli clan of the village of Tihanhi found a mohra while he was ploughing in his field. A voice in the air announced at the same time that a temple should be built at a place named Baadi near the bank of the river and the mohra should be established there. The person met the Brahmins of Tumanh village and called the carpenters of village Shaai village and built the temple for the devi. The devi has seven mohras. These mohras have inscriptions. In folk tradition Baihni Mahadev is considered the brother of Vadi Durga. The devi travels to Saryolsar.
