The story of Nagdev Mandir Pauri
According to locals, Nag Devta is considered to be the god of Dobhal dynasty. Dobh (Dobh-Shrikot) is a village on Pauri-Srinagar road, in which people of Dobhal caste live. It is said that about a hundred years ago a child was born in this village. The upper part of this child’s body was human and the lower part was of a snake.
One day the boy tells his father to establish him in the Bhairavgarhi temple of Lansdown area. The child also said that to take him in a Kandi and not take it in any place while carrying it. People from Dobha village took the child in the Kandi and headed towards the Bhairavgarhi temple.
On the way, people accidentally put that Kandi in the ground. After that, the boy refused to pick up the Kandi and asked his village people to dig at that place. A soft water stream was excavated at that place. According to the order of the child, the villagers took a bath in that water stream and worshiped the child and installed him at that place.
Since then this place has become known as Nag Devta. The natural water source, which is rooted in excavation, is still located near the temple.
