Shri Amar Kund, the holy pond at
Temple, in Chakwal district in Pakistan was
restored recently. The Pond associated with Hindu God Shiva had dried up due to
excessive underwater usage. Dedicated to Shiva, the Katasraj temple is part of
several Hindu Puranas. On hearing Sati’s death, two tears trickled down from
Lord Shiva and fell on earth. It is believed that the pond at the Katasraj
temple complex was formed by the tear that fell here. The temple was later
built near the holy pond.
The temple is mentioned in the Mahabharata and during their exile Pandavas stayed here for sometime. It is believed that the dialogue between Yaksha and Yudhishtar took place here.
