Temples And Legends of Himachal Pradesh
Introduction

At village Thor, in Pachhad tahsil, is an ancient temple with a gilt dome but no image. Worship is held every evening with music, incense, and the sound of conch. Pilgrims offer fruits and grains etc. The investment of the Guru, also called "Mahant" (prior), in this temple is quite a pompous ceremony. The temple was originally founded by Mahant Tawarnath but was subsequently rebuilt by Mahant Mayagir, eleventh in descent from Tawarnath.

The names of the Mahants who have held this temple, in order of succession are, Tawarnath, Balgir, Bhawannagir, Ramgir, Sanjhagir, Mansagir, Daulatgir, Bachangir, Ilaichigir, Dhanigir, Mayagir, Dayagir, Shankargir, Purangir, Bhimgir, Akhandagir and Vishnugir (the present "Mahant").
