Some Other Places To Visit


Tradition ascribes this to king Yayati, who performed sacrifice of every type here, and the story goes that the water in the tank was changed into dugdh, ghrit and madhu-milk, ghee and honey alternately soon after the final one.


It is a corrupt form of the word Kapisthal. It is recorded that Hanuman was born here. In the month of Shravan, a big fair is held attracting lakhs, for offering special poojas to Lord Hanuman and also performing religious rites.


It is famous for several temples, tanks and dharmasalas built in recent times. It is said that Parasuram performed sacrifices here, and so holds grip on the religionists.


Its story too is quite interesting to hear, and offer prayers also. Janamejaya performed here a big Yagna to destroy snakes and relieve the people of their fear. To ward off snake menace and the disasters of bite, people throng here and offer prayers.


It is situated near the Jind railway station. Puranas embody the fact that Maha Vishnu appeared here as Varah to save the earth from diabolical treachery of Hiranyaksha.
