History and Legends
The city is also renowned as the lake of three sages and famous as the Tri Rishi Sarovar, as cited in the Skanda Purana’s Khand chapter. According to the legend, the three sages made a halt at Nainital to quench their thirst. As they found no water, consequently they dug a hole and poured some water from the holy Mansarovar Lake (Tibet). Thereafter, the famous lake of Nainital was found. Another legend states that the left eye of Sati (Lord Shiva’s Wife) fell in the center of the lake and made it appear as an eye-shaped lake.
