It is said about the Latu Deity temple that ‘Nagraj’ resides with the Mani in the form of Sarvshit inside this temple. The devotee is afraid to see the nag, and therefore the mouth and eye belt is formed. It is also said that the smell of the priest’s mouth did not reach the deity, hence the bandage is kept in the mouth of the priest during worship. Figures are not seen in the Latu Deity temple. Only the priest goes for worship within the temple.

According to the villagers, ‘Nag Mani’ is in the temple.

The owner of the house was elderly. The elderly said to Latu Deva that drink water in the corner, drink water. Inside the glass pot, there was water in the pot (locally made raw liquor) and the second pot of soil, but life (local level raw liquor) remains so clean that Latu takes it as clean water and drinks it. .

When Latu learns that he has drunk alcohol in the water, then soon after the wine starts showing his effect. Latu deities begin to add to their drunkenness. Seeing this, Goddess Parvati gets angry and puts Latu in jail. According to the order of Goddess Parvati, the Latu deity is always kept in captivity. It is believed that the Latu deities are held in the prison as a huge snake. Do not be afraid to see the priest, so he binds his eyes to open the door of the temple.
