Origin Point of Saraswati River - Shri Saraswati Udgam Sthal in Yamunanagar in Haryana

Located in the Shivalik Mountains, origin Point of Saraswati River is near the Adi Badrinath Temple in Yamunanagar District in Haryana. There is a kund or pond here which is believed to be the starting point of Saraswati River. Shri Saraswati Udgam Sthal is located around 15 km from the famous Kapal Mochan Tirth in Bilaspur.

The temple of Adi Badri is of great significance. It is believed that River Saraswati flowed from here during the Satya, Treta and Dwapar yuga.

The River disappeared in the Kali Yuga. According to Mahabharata, Saraswati River dried up on account of a curse by the Sage Utathya.

Apart from the Adi Badri Temple the place also has a temple dedicated to Shiva – a naturally formed Shivling believed to be Adi Kedarnath. There is also a temple of Goddess Mantra Devi.
