HIGHLIGHTS

Devta Sheshnag towards public welfare incarnated first on the Earth in Delhi and reached Nirmand from there. Here, after meeting from Parashuram Ji, passing through Baadi Bahna, in the Suket region of district Mandi, after reaching a place called MahuNag established here his eldest ‘Kala’ and made fire an endless ‘Dhoona’. From here Devta established ‘Jagti’ at a place called Balhe Beed in outer Saraaj in district Kullu. From there, he reached to a place namely Tandi in Talokpur Garh passing through Shanichari Garh and Jagatpur. There livead a welathy landlord here, who used to exploit people around and did not believe Devi-Devta at all. To teach him a lesson, Sheshnag produced uncountable bugs due to which he had to make a swing of rope to sleep. By virtue of ‘Dev Leela’ bug even reached to his bed and started bite him. Accepting defeated he accepted the reign of Devta and presented all his wealth to him. Devta appointed him his store keeper and reached himself at a place named Baahu. There lived a mighty demon. Fled him away from there, Devta reached to a place namely Narahan passing through Bhoomiyan and Khadaropa. There he appointed his first ‘Mehta’. From Narahan, Sheshnag reached to Mihar where he meet Narayani Devi and moving forward ahead, reached to a place namely Sar of Kothi Khadagaad. There he appointed another ‘Mehta’ then Devta reached to a place namely Rashala passing through Kuthachi. There it was the reign of Devta Rashalu. Because this place pleased Sheshnag very much so with the help of Lagisari Devta he send Rashalu Devta to another place and make Rashala his reign and entered in the charriot of Rashalu Devta. On this very beautiful place, Devta, from his devine power flowed clough both side and hence this place had taken the shape of a tongue. From then, this place is known as Jibhee and Devta was called Jibhee Devta. The main temple is in Jibhee and all the activities like Deuli and other programs are managed from here. Common people worship Devta regard him as his diety.
