HIGHLIGHTS

Eldest of the seven sisters born at Baada Kui is known as Latasan Devi. On the advice of Devi Ambika she moved to find a suitable place and firstly settled at Magbil which is seven km away from Nirmand. She moved further and reached at a place called Chui Mai near Durah. Then she went to Kandu near village Duraah. The goddess took her place in a bush of Bhekhal. Then she ordered in a dream to a person of Bauhra family of village Gaura that he should build a temple according the structure made of the Kauni grains by the ants in the bush of Bhekhal. As the goddess resides in the area of Lot Phati she is called Lotasan and is worshiped as Latasan devi. The devi has twelve mohras. The main mohra is named as shiraa miraa
