According to the Puranas, When Brahma Ji created the universe, Earth was created for the sake of people. Then all the Gods and Goddesses said to Brahma ji ” Lord, you have made the earth- a world for all humans. Give some place for us also on this Earth.” Then Brahma ji said “There will be a country named India in the whole earth, In which you will sit in the place named Uttarakhand. And even today the land of Uttarakhand is known as Devbhoomi.
