Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional Stories, Community Narratives -61

  Compiled and Edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

 (Narrated by Late Murli Dhar Kukreti, Baij Ram Kukreti, Jaspur, Pauri Garhwal)

            Jaspur is one of the oldest villages in Gangasalan. The first Kukreti of Garhwal settled in Jaspur (Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal).
                 When present Thantholi village was not established this village area was under Jaspur. There is a Shiva temple in Beldhar of Thantholi and surprisingly the temple is situated in a hill top called Beldhar or hill top where Bel trees grow. It is said that in old days, there was a spring in Beldhar or hill top. Kukreti of Jaspur donated Thantholi to Kandwal migrated from Kimsar and made Kandwal the priest of Beldhar Shivala.
         There is a village Keechkhal in between Chailusain (Dabralsyun) and Dwarikhal (Langur Walla). Keechkhal would be fifteen to twenty kilometers far from Beldhar. There was farmer named Balkhu in Keechkhal. He had big cow herds. Once, Balkhu found that his one cow did not milk for many days in morning and in evening too. Balkhu asked the future teller but the future teller said that no deity is unhappy with Balkhu. Balkhu checked the nipples of his cow and found that as if somebody milked her in night. Again next morning, Balkhu checked nipples of cow and found that somebody milked the cow.
                  Balkhu thought about knowing milking of cow. Balkhu hid in his cowshed courtyard outside the room. Balkhu had an axe in his hand. Balkhu was surprised that automatically the cowshed door opened. His cow came out of shed and started walking.  Balkhu followed his cow. Cow was walking without any fear in night. Cow reached Beldhar by passing Chailusain, Silogi, and Ganikya hill shrines. Balkhu was shocked to see that his cow reached at Shiv temple of Beldhar. She stood above Shiv Ling and started milking. When the cow stopped milking she started to return.
  Watching the scene of his cow milking on Shiv Ling, Balkhu became angry and he hit with force his axe on Linga but the axe hit the yoni part. The hitting broke Yoni into three parts. One broken part fell below Jaspur and other part fell below Bareth. The third par remains with Shiv Ling. After breaking Shiv Linga, Balkhu returned to his village.
  After many days after the incident, village chief of Jaspur saw a dream and saw that one Shiv Linga  part is lying in south of Jaspur village and other part below village Bareth. The village chief built a small Shivala in Jaspur territory (South of Jaspur). Many years after, Shiv Datt Padhan (Heirs of elder brother of Kukreti of Jaspur who were migrated to Gweel village) renovated the small Shivala below Jaspur village. Shiv Datt Padhan brought a Gusain or Giri family for performing daily rituals and to look after the temple. Shiv Datt Padhan also donated Gusain or Giri family the land near Shivala temple.
  A Kukreti family from Gweel built another Shivala where the broken part of Shiv Linga was fallen.  
Today, both the Shiva temples are called Gweel ka Shivala.
