The land of  Dharma


It was once a holy stream lying between the rivers Saraswati and Drishadwati. And it is now reduced to a small tank lying on south side of Kurukshetra University campus. It is equated with Gaya in many respects, and it is said that a dip in it confers the same merit as that of Gaya when bathed. So people visit it for bath.

Amongst several other worth-seeing places, the following deserve visiting, both for offering prayers and feasting the eyes with lovely modern structures. Kapil Thirtha, Prusti Thirtha, Deva nhirtha, Vana T'hirtha, Mahadev Thirtha and Soma Karthik Thirtha are but a few in the long list. All these need not necessarily testify to the fact that only Hindu temples and their religion alone are found dominating in this kshetra. Its religious tolerance and catholic outlook can be seen in the existence of scores of Gurudwaras, Masjids and Churches built side by side or in isolation. And they are visited by thousands throughout the year and enjoying equal attention and attraction by public and government.

Mention must be made of the Mousoleum of Shaik Chelli, an important centre of Muslim pilgrimage, and it is attracting pilgrims like any Hindu temple round the year. As the Sikhs recognized and respected the eternal truths of Hinduism, they visited this place and donated, besides building Gurudwaras and Dharmasalas for their convenience. Needless to emphasize that this punyakshetra is a meeting ground of the major religions, and it is striving its best to foster unity amidst the endless diversity.
