God of Justice Golu Deveta of Chetai


6    Golu  devta  is  most  revered  and worshiped deity.  Golju was a warrior of  8th century who fought injustice despite many odds. During Jagar stories  of  his  bravery  are  still  sung.     The  temple is  situated  between  dense  pine forest.   Appeals  on  stamp/ plain  paper   are tagged around  by the  persons  subjected to unjust. Thousands  of big and small  bells  are tied around  the  temple  in  token of  gratitude and acknowledgements from devotes who got justice or their  wishes  were  fulfilled.  Golju  receives  several  appeals   by  post  also.

Kasar Devi

6 Kasar Devi is situated on the pine-covered Crank’s Ridge or Hippie Hill,   is a great spot for spending long hours in quiet solitude, as it has a magnificent view of the Himalayas. Swami Vivekananda used to meditate here. Writer D. H. Lawrence spent two summers here. It is also home of Govind Lama and his wife Lee Gautami. It has also attracted Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and Timothy Leary, the father of the hippy movement. Still a small community of ex-hippies settled here.
