THE LEGEND OF SHIRIGUL TEMPLE
According to another belief Shirigul happened to be a staunch devotee of Shiva. He desired to have a temple of his own at Chur peak. To achieve this he caused a disease amongst the young boys of the vicinity and declared that the disease could be cured if a temple is built for him over Chur Peak. Thereafter the temple was built for him.

As to the construction of the temple, one comes across an interesting legend connected with the Muslim emperor of Delhi who played a most deceptive and undignified role in the related episode.
