To participate in the ongoing ancient Mela Pat which depicts unique Nag culture, hundreds of people converged at historical Khakhal locality of Bhadarwah town on Sunday to take blessings of Vasuki Nag. Three-day Holy Mela Pat, which is celebrated every year to commemorate the historic meet between Emperor Akbar and King Nagpal of Bhadarwah during the 16th century at Delhi, started here on Saturday. Hundreds of people drawn from different parts of the State participated in the Mela, which is devoted to Lord Vasuki Nag, the presiding deity of Bhadarwah Valley and is celebrated on Nag Panchmi every year. The Mela was first initiated in 16th century by king Nagpal, the ruler of a small principality called Bhadarkashi, presently known as Bhadarwah. The Mela is organized on the conclusion of Kailash Yatra and people without any difference of caste, color and creed participate and witness the Mela.
