The Sacred Crocodiles of Manghopir
The origins of the Crocodiles in Manghopir are lost in time and there are many stories which relate to them. Presently they are located on the site of a shrine to a Muslim saint. A nearby archaelogical site (2500-1700 BC) suggests that Crocodiles were worshipped by people even way back then.
