Jyotisaras – Place where Bhagavad Gita was narrated in the Kurukshetra

Jyotisaras is a holy place located near Kurukshetra in Haryana and it is believed that the Bhagavad Gita was narrated by Sri Krishna to Arjuna here. A Vat Vriksha, a banyan tree, believed to be more than 8000 years is worshipped here. Jyotisaras is located on the Pehowa – Kurukshetra Road and is around 5 km from Kurukshetra. It was at Jyotisaras, Krishna showed the Virat Roopa. The Banayan Tree standing here is witness to the Kurukshetra war in the Mahabharata. It was also lucky to listen to the Gita and also witness the Virat Roopa. Today one can see a marble chariot depicting Arjuna and Krishna . There is also a mango shaped pond. Another highlight is an old Shiva Temple .
