BHADARWAH: Three-day holy Mela Patt, which is celebrated every year to commemorate the historic meet between emperor Akbar and king Nagpal of Bhadarwah held in 16th century at Delhi, started here on Saturday.
Thousands of people drawn from different parts of the State participated in the Mela. The Mela is devoted to Lord Vaskui Naag, the presiding deity of Bhadarwah Valley and is celebrated on Nag Panchmi every year. The Mela was first initiated in 16th century by king Nagpa 1, the ruler of that small principality called the then Bhaderkashi, presently known as Bhadarwah.
The Mela is organised on the conclusion of Kailash Yatra and people without any difference of caste, colour and creed participate and witness the Mela.
The festival sees enthusiasts from across north-India, as they believe that their wishes will come true if they pray earnestly. Not only people from Jammu and Kashmir, but from people across north India come to see the festival.
