Temal i.e. Ter Mal, according to Buddhist Mythology is a place of Treasures. Temal is a blessed and gifted place of Guru Rinpoche. It is also the home of the "Buddha Chitta Mala" (prayer mantra wood-bead garland). Many decades back, Temal used to be a place of demons. There was a demon/ monster named "Yaksha Nagpo", whose whole body used to be a 'human body'; except his head was of 'snake'. The monster used to worry and fear the whole villagers by eating their little children every day.
Guru Rinpoche who was meditating at Pharping heard about all those incidents and felt that 'Temal' needs him to protect the people and villages. History has the story that Guru came to the village and killed the monster. Later, Guru decided to leave the village since he felt the responsibility of going to other places to protect and do his KARMA. Guru left 3 seeds/plant of 'Bodhi Chitta Mala' on his remembrance. He also reminded villagers that if they care about those seeds of Mala, they can earn both Wealth and Happiness in the village. So, that's from where the farming of 'Bodhi Chitta Mala' started at Temal.
