Legend of Sodal Mandir

According to the legend, Baba Sodal accompanied his mother to the river banks even when she told him to stay home. The mother got furious, cursed the child and told him to drown himself in water. Baba Sodal asked his mother to repeat her orders, and when she did, he jumped into the water to never appear again. It is said that the boy transformed himself into a holy snake and bid adieu to the mortal world. A temple was built where this incident took place called Baba Sodal Temple. Millions of pilgrims take a dip in the holy water reservoir beside the temple where Baba Sodal had jumped; it’s called Baba Sodal da Sarovar.
