History of Nainital Lake


Mythological History

The Tri-Rishi-Sarovar, also known as Nainital, is the lake (Tal) of the three sages Atri, Pulastya, and Pulaha who are said to have come here on a penitential pilgrimage and, upon discovering no water to slake their thirst, dug a hole and syphoned water into it from Mansarovar, the sacred lake in Tibet. This lake is mentioned in the "Manas Khand" (Sacred Book) of the "Skanda Purana” (Sacred Book) .

As one of the 64 "Shakti Peeths," Nainital is mentioned in mythology a second time. When Lord Shiva was dragging about Sati's burnt corpse in sadness, these centres were established wherever its various pieces had fallen. The left eye (Nain) of Sati is supposed to have fallen here, becoming the patron goddess of the town of Nainital. The lake is supposed to be shaped like an emerald eye. The Naina Devi shrine is situated at the lake's northernmost point. Naina and the tal are where Nainital gets its name (Lake).


British Settlement

An English businessman from Rosa named Mr. P. Barron, a sugar dealer, and his buddy, a keen hunter, wandered into the hills while out hunting and became lost. As they were trying to find their way back, they happened onto the wonderful location. Barron was so taken with the idea of the serene lake that he abandoned the sugar industry and established a European Colony along its banks. The discovery of a lake close to Almora was announced by Nainital in an 1841 edition of the "Englishman Calcutta".
