Story related to the temple-
It is believed about Jwalpa Devi that once Suchi, the daughter of a demon named Pulom, meditated on the banks of river Nayar to get Indra as her husband. Pleased with the austerity of Suchi, Mother Bhagwati appeared in the form of flame i.e. Agni at this place.
After this, the mother gave the boon of the monster’s daughter Suchi complete her wish. The place was named Jwalpa Devi because of its appearance in Jwala form. When the Goddess Parvati appeared in the form of a radiant flame, that monolithic lamp continues to light up in the temple ever since.
In order to continue this tradition, oil has been sourced from the villages of Kafolsun, Mawalsune, Ringwadsuun, Khatsuun, Ghoradasun and Guradsuan pattas since then. Mustard is grown in the fields of these villages and oil is arranged to keep the unbroken lamp burning.
