Brahma Sarovar

Brahma Sarovar is one of the holiest water tanks of Kurukshetra. It is believed that this is the place where Lord Brahma, the creator of universe conceived the earth. Al Beruni mentioned about this holy water tank in his book named 'Kitab-ul-Hind'. A dip in the Sarovar helps to gain sanctity as same as that of performing 'Ashvamedha Yajna'. It is of belief that bath on the days of the solar eclipse helps people to get away from all sins.

Brahma Sarovar is 3600x1500 ft in size. The unique feature of Brahma Sarovar is the holy seat of Lord Mahadev. There is a small temple built within the lake and is linked to outer side by a small bridge. Arched enclosures are built for pilgrims. It is also a place for hermits to meditate.

'Deep Daan' and 'Aarti' are the ceremonies related with Gita Jayanti celebrations conducted with much enthusiasm. It is conducted every year in the last week of November and early December. During winter migratory birds from far off places visit this holy tank. Birla Gita Mandir and Baba Nath's haveli are the nearby attraction.
