                                  About It

Thirtha is associated with the spot where Bhisma fell on the battle field on the 10th day of Mahabharata battle. After his fall Bhisma requested the assembled Kauravas and Pandavas for water to quench his thirst. Kauravas offered him cool water which he denied to drink. Arjuna soon understood the willingness of his great grand father. He pierced the ground by an arrow called Parjanyastra. Bhisma thus quenched his thirst by the water that gushed out in consequence. The spot where Arjuna’s arrow struck into the ground is called Bhisma Kunda. Recently the ancient stepwell has been renovated. According to local legends, Bhisma remained here on the bed of arrows for 58 days before leaving for the heavenly abode.
