 Borikh village is in Aswalsyun, Barahsyun Pargana, Pauri Garhwal. A  Dobhal family migrated to Borikh from Dobh, Idwalsyun.
               There is a temple called Jabaleshwar Mahadev temple at Jabal River bank north of Borikh. The temple is famous for its long, high and round Shiv Ling. It is said that Shiv Ling emerged from Jabla River. There is a folk tale about establishment of Jableshwar temple.
   The story states that one night, Pundit Jay Krishna Dobhal of Borikh saw a dream. Lord informed Jay Krishna that there is a Shiv Ling lying in Jabla River. Lord ordered Jay Krishna to take Shiv Ling and establish it at appropriate place. In morning, Jaya Krishna Dobhal went to Jabla River and found Shiva Ling. Next day, the villagers of Borikh, Raud, Hitoli, Bagwanu, Jhatkandi, Tangoli, Dangi and Saknauli villages came to the site where Shiv Ling was lying. The villagers of above villages came with dancing on the tune of Damru, Thali, Dhol, Damau and Shinai. People were happy to see the Shiv Ling.   
  Villagers reached to Shiv Ling site in the middle of Jabla River that they would disestablish Shiv Ling and establish at proper place. Villagers started to move the Shiv Ling but could not move Shiv Ling at all. Pundit Jay Krishna Dobhal also tried to move the Shiv Ling. Nobody could move Shiv Ling either alone or collectively.
     Jay Krishna Dobhal started performing Shiva ritual with pious emotion. Now, when villagers started to move Shiva Ling it was moving slightly but was not getting out from its place.
           Jay Krishna Dobhal started discussing with Shiva Ling in a secret language. Shiva accepted the request of Jaya Krishna. Now, Jaya Krishna Dobhal ordered to villagers to move Shiva Ling. Villagers touched Shiva Ling and Shiva Ling started moving.  Now, villagers took the heavy Shiva Ling collectively and put Shiva Ling there only at bank of Jabla River. Villagers built a Shiva temple there called Jableshwar Mahadev Mandir.
