Kurukshetra District of Haryana at a Glance

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.
