Gwal Devta Temple

Gwal Devta Temple is located at Gwarail Chaurah. The temple is devoted to Gwal Devta who is also known as Goril or Goll. It is said that Goril was a Katyuri prince of Champawat. He was known for his unwavering justice and fair play. However, he was himself a victim of a conspiracy hatched up by his stepmother who had him thrown into a river, locked up in an iron cage. Devotees believe that Gwal Devta helps the victims of injustice and cruelty and hence, his temple stands as a mark of justice. A large number of devotees visit this temple throughout the year.
