Sannihit Sarovar - Kurukshetra



Another holy water tank is the Sannehit Sarovar. It is 1500x450 feet in size. On the days of Amavasyas (night of complete darkness) or on the days of eclipse, all the sacred tirthas assemble at Sanneshit.

It is the seat where the wandering souls of the unhappy dead find moksha or release from wordly ties. Prayers and pind daan for the unnatural deaths is recommended here. Since time immemorial, people from all over India have been visiting Kurukshetra to have a sacred dip and there by attain moksha or liberation. It is the resort of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Shiva became sthanu (stationary) by residing at this place. It is here that the Rigvedic sage Dadhichi gave up his life for the sake of Indra.

The Bhagavata Purana mentions that at this place, on solar eclipse, Krishna met with the gopies and other kinsmen who came here from Braja. By the side of the tank lie temples of Surya Narayana, Dhruv-Narayana and Lakshmi-Narayana.

This Sarovar is believed to be the meeting point of seven sacred Saraswatis. The sarovar, according to popular belief, contains sacred water. Bathing in the waters of the tank on the day of Amavasya (night of complete darkness) or on the day of an eclipse bestows blessings equivalent to performing the ashvamedh yajna.
