There are amazing stories behind the naming of cities in India, and one such amazing story holds true for the City of Lakes – Nainital as well. According to mythology, when Sati was sacrificed, Lord Shiva picked up her body and every place where remains of her fell “Shaktipeeths’” was made. Sati’s left eye is believed to have fallen in the place where Nainital is today.
The Naini lake is said to have originated out of Sati’s tears. Due to the presence of so many lakes, it rains almost every afternoon in Nainital. Nainital is older than Jesus Christ and was formerly addressed as Khadesh.
The city of lakes is a paradise in itself, and one must visit it.
