Nal Damyanti tal from Satyug in Bhimtal
Nal Damyanti Lake in Bhimtal is a small natural lake located about 2 km from Bhimtal. This placid lake is considered to be sacred in the town.
According to locals, Nal Damyanti Tal in Bhimtal is an ancient King Nal, and his entire palace was submerged in the water at Tal. His wife Damyanti was frying the fish at the time, and the burn marks on the fish in the lake can still be seen.
While the stories and the Tal’s association with Satyug in the Hindu Epochs or Kal make this place very interesting. The beauty of the landscape, as well as a lake full of fish with exquisite burn marks, is what makes it one of the best-unexplored destinations that people like us keep looking for.
Add to that the ease of access and proximity to Nainital, Bhimtal, and Kathgodam railway stations, as well as Delhi, which is a five to six-hour drive away, and you have a perfect destination. It is a sacred site for the locals, so fishing is strictly prohibited. However, there are no manned guards to keep fishermen at bay.
It is believed that fishing in the lake will bring bad luck, and there are numerous stories about people who dared to fish and the misfortune that resulted. Countless millions of years! If we believe in the locals’ collective memory. It is thought to be from Satyug, and you should read Hindu Epoch and Yuga System for more information on the timelines.
History of Nal Damyanti Tal in Bhimtal
This is an old-fashioned love story. Locals believe that King Nal lives happily in his palace with his young and extremely beautiful wife Damyanti. Damyanti’s unparalleled beauty is known throughout the earth and heavens, and her marriage to King Nal comes at the expense of ignoring the gods.
Many people believe Damyanti has offended the gods by marrying a human. Damyanti, on the other hand, stays true to her love.
Damyanti begins to have nightmares in which a strange sound asks her, “May I come inside?” When Damyanti discusses her nightmares with King Nal, he advises her to say ‘yes’ the next time she has one.
She takes his advice, and it was the evil spirit of water who was requesting permission. It then submerges her palace while she was cooking fish. It is thought that the burn-like spots can still be seen on the lake’s fish. The palace that we see today is the Nal Damyanti Tal in Bhimtal!
