             In Garhwali Kingdom and Nepalese rule, both the administrations offered lands for a few important temples. Nepalese government increased land for temples. The said land was called ‘Gunth’. The income from ‘Gunth’ land was used for salaries for priests, and workers of the temple.  From ‘Sadabrat’, the food and other articles were distributed among the pilgrims of visiting Badrinath –Kedarnath.
    In 1815, there was total land of 501 villages in ‘Gunth’. British administration measured the land offered for Gunth in 1823 and detail is as follows (Atkinson) –
