Take a bath in this Holy Pond of Tears and your sins will wash away! This is what the Hindus believe about this pond inside Katas Raj. A Brahmanical story said that the pond at Katas Raj temples was formed by the tears that Lord Shiva shed after the death of his wife Sati. The name of the temple complex is believed to derive from the Sanskrit word kataksha, meaning “teary eyes.”
Moreover it is said that Guru Nanak also visited the place on the first of Visakh. Katas came to be known as Nanaknawas and was a site of contemplation for many large groups of mystics, ascetics and jogis.
According to Archaeological Survey of India director general Alan Cuningham in 1872-73 CE, Katas Raj is the second biggest holy place in Punjab for Hindus after Jawala Mukhi. It is believed that the site was visited by the Pandawa brothers of “Mahabharta” fame and this complex of temples was constructed to commemorate their visit. The location of the Sath Ghara or Seven Temples is said to be the place where the Pandawas made their home during their 12 year exile.
