Discovering the legend of Gudariya Baba


The locals of Mangar Bani believe in the legend of ‘Gudariya Baba’, who they believe protects the sacred forest grove.

He first appeared almost five centuries ago as a young boy who was just wearing a loin cloth (known as ‘gudari’ in Hindi) and hence, he is referred to as Gudariya Baba.

According to the legend, he used to  meditate in a cave inside the forest and he vanished in that cave itself. The local villagers believe that if the people subject the forest to any harm, they will face the wrath of nature.
