History

The place is possibly the site of Sarpadevi or Sarpidadhi referred in Mahabharata and Vamana Puran. It is associated with snake sacrifice of Janamejaya son of Parikshita. The latter lost his life in the struggle against the Nagas of Taxila, which was later avenged by his son Janamejaya, symbolised in the epic tradition of Sarpasastra (snake sacrifice) which possibly took place at Sarpadevi. There are three ancient temples and tirthas of Nageshvara Mahadeva, Nagadamni Devi and Nagashetra.
