About Kamrunag Temple

KAMRU NAG TEMPLE

Kamru Nag or popularly called as Dev Kamru or ‘Kamruha’ is an important deity of ‘Shivratri’ fair. Does not come with his charit and hill orchestra ‘baja-gaja ‘. He is represented by silver metal- image. This ‘Nag Devta’ has exquisite figure engraved in a little circular border encircled by serpent coils.The figure engraved has sharp nose, wide eyes, small chin, thin lips and broad forehead. This silver figure of Kamru Nag has embellished headgear. There are ornamental geometrical patterns and beads encircling the figure. This silver figure is supported by fan- like background material and is therefore, ‘Kamru Nag ka Pankha’ The religious shrine of the deity is situated near Ruhanda on Mandi- Karsog road some 4 km trekking above in Mandi district.

The place of Kamru Nag is well- known for two reasons. Firstly it is the lake (‘Sar’) of the place where it is said that tons of gold and silver are lying by way of ornaments which otherwise lie buried in the waters  of the lake for centuries together. Similarly the gold and silver coins too have been offered and these are laying safely in it. The religious injuction not to take anythings from the lake (‘Sar’) has led to the accumulation of this golden treasure and valuable currency. The story goes that those who tried to steal this got blinded, and they got their vision restored when they throw all the  ornaments and gold and silver coins into the lake with repentance at heart. This is an unique feature of Dev Kamru Nag and deserved all praise and reverence.

There is another of Dev Kamru Nag and that is the ‘Jag’(night vigil celebrations) on the occasion of Ashadh  Santranti of Vikrami  Samvat.T he celebrations are popularly known as ‘Saranauhali’, i.e.taking sacred bath in the lake. The entire deep forest forested area gets lighted with a sort of compfire at hundreds of places with thousands of people spread over the entire area. The hundreds of  goats are sacrificant according to the tradition as a mark of thankfulness for having granted the desire of the devotee by Dev Kamru Nag. The People put up tents and there are many parties who come in a ‘jatra’ (procession) with Pahari orchestra’baja-gaja’ and they stay here for the night to say prayers to Dev Kamru Nag and have ‘jagran’ singhing ‘bhajans’ and devotional songs thoughout the right.

Dev Kamru Nag whenever comes to international ‘Shivratri’ fair at Mandi his main deity is the sculptured silver figure on a fan –like background and shape and it is carried by the ‘Deulu’ (devotee of the deity). There are other two persons who carry the ‘gaj’, i.e.iron- stick which is another important emblem of the deity. The other iron thing a little different form the ‘gaj’ and ‘kohala’ & contains ornamental geometrical pattens also. Dev Kamru Nag has place of prominence among the Devtas and Devis who visit Mandi during ‘Shivratri’ fair. He stays in Shyamakali temple –complex at Tarna Hill and is frequently visited by local and other devotees. He is invoked when there used to be drought or famine as he is considered the bestower of rains and prosperity.
