The most well-known temple honouring the deity is the Chitai Golu Devta temple (श्री गोलू देवता मंदिर), which is around 5.2 miles (8.4 Kilometer) from Almora, Uttarakhand.
The deity, Golu Devta, had a unique custom of riding far distances on his horse to interact with the citizens of his kingdom. Golu Darbar was the name of this meeting. Golu Devta would patiently listen to people’s issues during these gatherings and provide assistance in any manner he could. He had a soft spot in his heart for the populace and was always willing to help. He lived a humble life and adhered to brahmacharya principles because of his great devotion to the people.
The existence and influence of Golu Devta in today’s era
Golu Devta still communicates with his people today. Many villages still follow the Golu Darbar custom, in which Golu Devta appears in front of the populace, listens to their issues, and offers to help. In the modern day, Jagar is Golu Devta Darbar’s most prevalent version.
It is thought that Golu Devta still travels on his white horse since he has always had a unique bond with it.
He excels in his role as the god of justice, for which he is venerated. His catchphrase is “Jai Ho Nyay Devta Goljyu Tumar Jai ho.” (जय हो न्याय देवता गोल्ज्यू तुमार जय हो)
