Nagpanchami on Dalha Pahad

 On the occasion of Nagpanchami, the glory of the Suryakund located in Dalha is considered the most.

 Thousands of people walk through mountains, forests, and stones to drink water. 

After walking such a long way, one has to climb four kilometers of stairs.

And people have such a belief that any kind of disease can be cured by drinking water here. 

With this hope, every year lakhs of devotees come here on the day of Nagpanchami walking many kilometers on foot to drink water from the kund. 

Everyone comes here to visit Dalha Baba.

another special thing about the ashram is that here on the call of Baba, langurs (monkeys) come to him, and as soon as Baba calls him, the monkeys reach him running to eat.

Beliefs of Dalha Pahad

Many stories and supernatural secrets of Dalha mountain are famous.

experts believe that Dalha mountain has been formed by geological activity ie volcanic eruption.

since Janjgir Champa area is a plateau area and limestone is also there in large quantities.
