HIGHLIGHTS

This Devta after transforming himself into a child used to play every day with a milk man in Bhoohani dhar. This way friendship developed between them. Whole day they used to play and cows roamed here and there. In evening, Devta helped the milkman gather his cows and disappeared. Once the milk man asked about the identity of Devta he told him that he was Ghatotkatch and wants welfare of the villagers. When villagers came to know about this they built a temple. Due to appearance of the devta on Bhoohani dhar they named him Bhoohani Dev.
