Arssalu became Arssa

Arsa was earlier called Arsalu, how is that? Actually, there is also an interesting story behind it. Jagadguru Shankaracharya built the Badrinath and Kedarnath temples. Apart from this, there are many such temples in Garhwal, which were built by Shankaracharya. The Brahmins of South India were engaged in these temples to worship. Some experts say that when the Brahmins came to Garhwal from South India in the ninth century, they brought a sweet Arsalu with them. As it was not spoiled even after a long time, so they used to bring Arsalu in full of packets. Gradually, these Brahmins also taught the local people the art of making it and thus reached Garhwal and then Arsalu became Arsa. Jaggery is used in Garhwal to make it, while date jaggery is used in Karnataka.
