HARIDWAR
The Gate Way Of Heaven

BRAHMA KUND

Another place lying next to it is called Brahma Kund. Once a famous king called Swetu performed a great yagna here. Satisfied with his austere life and the nature of performing yagna, Brahma descending, bestowed on him several boons, besides granting his pious request of liberating people by remaining here permanently: A temple built on its bank commemmorates this event, and as such this place went by the name Brahma Puri for a long time. At a little distance to this lies a ghat, ear-marked, as it were, for casting away the mortal remains of the dead - Asthivisarjana. Devout Hindus bring the ashes of the departed and immerge them in the water with due ceremonies. This is always crowded, and testifies to the fact of its spiritual significance.
