‘Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra’ is a work of outstanding artistry of Indo-Islamic architecture and  is located near the Dargah Sharif. It consists of a courtyard protected from all four sides and has a front screen wall of seven sharp arches inside the place. It originally was a Sanskrit College within a temple enclosure which was destroyed by Mohammad Ghori and was converted into a mosque. The name, Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra was given to the place in the latter half of the 18th century when fakirs began to assemble here in the times of the Marathas to celebrate the Urs anniversary of the death of the Pir Panjaba Shah, which lasted for two-and-a-half days (Adhai Din). The fakirs used to live in Jhonpras (huts), and hence, the name – Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra 



This beautiful artificial lake was built in the 12th century and named after Anaji Chauhan. The ‘Baradari’ (or Pavillion) was built by Mughal Emperor, Shahjehan. The huge embankment is a fine example of the corporate life in Ajme at that time.

About Kurukshetra District :

In the very first verse of Bhagwad-Gita (धर्मक्षेत्रे कुरुक्षेत्रे समवेता युयुत्सवः | मामकाः पाण्डवाश्चैव किम् अकुर्वत संजय ||), Kurukshetra is described as DHARAMKSHETRA i.e. ‘Region of righteousness’. Kurukshetra is a place of great historical and religious importance, revered all over the country for its sacred association with the Vedas and the Vedic Culture. It was here that the battle of Mahabharat was fought and Lord Krishna preached His Philosophy of ‘KARMA’ as enshrined in the Holy Bhagwad-Gita, to Arjuna at Jyotisar. According to Hindu mythology, the Kurukshetra is spread over, a circuit of about 48 KOS which includes a large number of holy places, temples and Sacred tanks connected with the religious events/rituals, Mahabharat War and Kurus, the ancestor of Kouravas and Pandavs. Kurukshetra is intimately related to the Aryan civilization and its growth all along the sacred river Saraswati.

It is believed that all the holy waters of all sacred rivers flow/converge into Kurukshetra’s Sannehit Sarovar, at the time of Somavati Amavasya & Solar eclipse. It is believed that those who visit this area reside here, take bath in the tanks, or die in Kurukshetra go to heaven after death. The Mahabharata states that one who dies at Kurukshetra attains salvation after death. It is said that the Almighty God after having perfomed, divine, yajnas created the universe here.
It is the land where the sage Manu penned his ‘Manusmriti’ and where learned ‘rishis’ compiled the Rig Veda and Sama Veda.Kurukshetra is named after King Kuru, who also performed a supreme sacrifice to bring prosperity to the land and his people.
