Katas Raj Temples

Sacred Destination: Katas Raj Temples

A historical prepossessing paradigm, the Katas Raj is a splendid complex of temples dedicated to Hindu deities and mythology.

Situated at a distance of 16 kilometers from Kallar Kahar, Punjab, the site houses seven temples, remains of a Buddha Stupa,  medieval sanctuaries, havelis and a sacred pond. As the faithful believe and the Brahmanical story narrates, the pond was created from a tear drop of Shiva as he flew across the sky carrying the dead body of his beloved wife. The legend also goes, the Pandavas came to this place during their exile and built the older temples. Prior to its Hindu roots the site held a Buddhist stupa said to have towered 61 m (200 ft) in height with ten streams around it as described by Alexander Cunningham, the first Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, in 1872-73 CE.
