Suraj Kund

Suraj Kund
This place itself is a history book with its every page a golden leaf.

King Mahipal was diseased with leprosy. Taking bath in this water reservoir his leprosy was cured and it disappeared as if in thin air.

King Chandra was made cuckoo by Mother Virmati, through, malpractice-mantras, The cuckoo made king jumped here in the miraculous water and a miracle happened as the knot broke. The king’s form restored. He gained here salvation after taking Diksha.

The cuckoo is carved in stone and placed in this kunda.

Just near it are Bhim Kund, Brahma Kund and Ishwar Kund.

Nowadays, the water supply for the purpose of bathing comes from these kunds.

      Jai jinendra. First of all know the difference between “Knowledge n “Vidya”. Knowledge cannot be taught. Its the inherent quailty of the Soul. Vidya is what we learn with the help of brain. And the brain connects with the outer world which is made up of matter.One may gather detailed information about it and may become expert in that field.One gets the wisdom by the virtue of Knowledge.Due to limitations of words Vidya and Knowledge are many a times are taken as one. But they are entirely different. So in Vedant they are separated as Para Vidya n Apara Vidya.One cannot acquire knowledge through books.They may offer aid only when one has really sensed what is wisdom.So much so for the day.
