History of Nainital
Parvati, daughter of king Daksh married Shiva against the wishes of her father, who, inspite of Shiva's god-like stance did not favour the match. King Daksh, to embrass and insult both daughter and son-in-law, held a great "Yajan". Everybody, who was anybody, was invited but the devoted young couple who had incurred his wrath, remained uninvited, Parvati fuming at the insult to her consort, stormed the 'Yajna and, before the horrified eyes of her father, leapt into the raging flames Lord Shiva, himself retrieved the half charred body and took it tenderly in his arms. On the way back to Mount Kailash, home of the gods, the eyes dropped into the lake giving the beautiful bluish green expanse of water. A temple was put up to the goddess Naina Devi, a name given to Parvati in affection, which lasted through the centuries till a landslide crushed it in 1880. It was rebuilt the very next year.
The lake is mentioned in the Manasa-Khanda of the Skanda Purana, where it is called Tri-Rishi-Sarovar or the lake of the three Rishis-Atri, Pulastya and Pulaha, who came to Naina peak in the course of their pilgrimage. The thirsty sages, unfortunately, found no water and with nostalgia remembered the Holy Mansarovar which inspired them with the zeal to dig a large pit. Almost miraculously it was filled with fresh water from Mana itself. The lake got the name 'the Lake of the three Rishis', which eventually, after the legend of Parvati's eyes, received its present name. It is said that the water bestows the same benefits that accrue from a visit to Mana.
Besides the Goddess Naina, the temple is also dedicated for some, to the Goddess Nanda the favourable goddess of the last rulers of the Chand Dynasty of Kumaon. Nanda was the sister-in law of a Chand Princess who was killed by a wild buffalo on her way to her in-laws. Soon after she was worshipped as a goddess.
Surrounded by hill ranges, and covered by dense forests, the region was a favourite grazing spot of the herders from surrounding villages.
