Rohini Kunda

Rohini Kunda is a sacred tank situated within the compound of Jagannath Temple in Puri. It lies behind the Narasimha Temple, on the way from Muktimandapa to the temple of Goddess Vimala.

Legend has it that a crow, named Bhusanda, fell down in this tank (Kunda). Then it immediately assumed the form of Vishnu and directly went to Vishnu-Loka with divine dignity. Keeping this event in mind, the devotees take some water from this tank and sprinkle it on their own heads for purification. The reflection of the temple and the sacred darshan of Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra and image of Kaka Chaturbhuja can also be seen on the crystal clear water of this tank.
