So as we all know malana is a village in Kullu. Everyone tells us different story about the history of that village. Malana is ruled by dev Jamlu and many people consider him as jamdagni Rishi, they think that Jamlu is short form for jamdagni which is not actually true. Jamlu is a god, he was ruler of some other place, he came from Tibet through spiti and entered Kullu through village prini where he made his first abode. Some say that his siblings are mata hadima in manali and raja ghepan of lahual who came with from the same place. Some even say that when gods were searching for gurus, only jamlu was not able to find guru so he made a Muslim guru his guru whose name was Kameer and he taught him ulte Ved And that’s why it is believed that like Muslims hum udhar chadar chadate hai in malana. And the language written on the borders of the temple is tankri. It is considered as god’s language. One who try’s to understand it, experiences something bad.

There was a demon who used to on feed people and gods weren’t able to defeat him. So all the gods decided to become his friend by as asking hand for marriage. He accepted the proposal, young beautiful girl go married to him. So as all the villagers were his in-laws now, so he went to the land of demons with his newly wed wife, but as the girl was a human being so she died shortly after living with the demons. Now the whole valley was cursed and people started dying as they sacrificed the life of an innocent girl, so Manu took step and told that he would celebrate a festival to appreciate the sacrifice made by the poor girl. Then after some time the curse was removed from the whole valley and people started to live happily. Till date this festival is celebrated and the soul of the girl and her husband demon are invited over the valley to celebrate and appreciate her sacrifice.
