It is also said that when Lord Shiva and Parvati stayed there for 11,000 years meditating, one day they were passing this valley, she dropped one MANI of her earrings. The MANI of the earring was lost in the river. Lord Shiva wanted to get the jewels back to her. He got angry and his third eye was opened which is considered as a weapon of destruction. ‘Shesh Nag’ appeared to pacify the anger of Lord Shiva. Shesh Nag hissed and there was a hot spring of boiling water which rose to an enormous hight along with which several precious stones were thrown out along with the previous mani. Lord Shiva was pacified as he got the MANI back. The water continues to be hot. Before the earthquake of 1905, it was still 10 feet high spring.
