KURUKSHETRA
The land of  Dharma

PLACES OF INTEREST

This sacred kshetra abounds in several worth-seeing spots of different kinds, like evergreen forests, gurgling rivulets blue water tanks, big shrines, Gurudwaras, Masjids and architectural marvels. According to Vamana I'urana this land is made more sacred by nine divine rivers flowing ever then. They arc the Saraswathi, Drishadwati, Hiranwati, Vaitarani, Madhusrava, Kuusaki, Vasu Apaga and Gapga Mandakin. The ravages of ages loft but one still flowing, and that is Saraswathi, and that too only in the rainy season. The traces of other rivers arc hard to recognise. In addition to the rivers, there were seven forests that served the land and the people in multitudinous ways, like sheltering the recluses, supplying fuel and medicinal herbs, besides luring the black clouds to pour down their rich contents. The Mahabharata and Vamana Purana make several references to their fame under different contexts. They are mentioned as the Kamyakavana, Aditivana, Vyasavana, Yhalakivana, Suryavana, Madhuvana and Sitavana. Further this divya kshetra is guarded by four Yakshas; named Arantak, Tarantak, Kapil and Machakruk. They are stationed at the four corners and are ever vigilant to keep the welfare of the people.
