about twin tanks

The most holy places for pilgrims are the twin tanks of Brahma Sarovar and Sannihit Sarovar. It’s believed the two together once made up one vast expanse of water. It is also said that Brahma Sarovar, which is a pucca tank brimming with fresh water from the Western Yamuna Canal, got its name as Lord Brahma performed his first yagna here. Its water draws a lot of migratory birds in winter. Lakhs of pilgrims converge at Brahma Sarovar whenever a solar eclipse occurs.

It is separated from the Sannihit Sarovar by a road, and boundary walls. Bathing at the Sannihit Sarovar on amavasya is believed to absolve one of all sins. The changing rooms built around the tanks aren’t clean. The other important temples in Kurukshetra are the Sthaneshwar Mahadev Temple in Thanesar, near Sheikh Chehli’s tomb, where the Pandavas invoked Lord Shiva before the eponymous 18-day battle, and the Bhadrakali Temple (north of Thanesar), which is a Shaktipeeth where Sati’s right heel is believed to have fallen.
