ABOUT THE AREA

The semi hilly area of District Hoshiarpur of Punjab State has been a Historical place since ancient times. This place is surrounded by small hills and forests of the Shivalik Range and has been the destination for meditation and Sadhana by the great ancient yogis. As mentioned in the great Epic ‘Mahabharata’, the Pandavas had led the last year of their incognito exile in this very area. It is said that many evidences of the incidents of their stay during this period are still intact in this area.

‘Viratnagar’ which is known today as ‘Dasuya’ is mentioned in the Mahabharta. The Pandava Sarover is the living example of that age. Situated at the foothills of this hilly area, the town is full of ancient Pandava-time anecdotes. It is said that before going to Viratnagar, the Pandavas had spent their ‘Agyatvas’ in these hilly forests. At Kantipur, there is a banyan tree in which the Pandavas had hidden their weapons during the tenure. After the name of Mata Kunti this village became famous as Kuntipur which eventually has changed to ‘Koi’.

One day while roaming in the forest Mata Kunti felt thirsty and fainted then Arjuna struck an arrow at one place and water came out from the place. All the Pandavas quenched their thirst. These days this place is called Baanganga (sumb) which is in village Labbar Puhari. The people of the area revere this Baan Ganga as much as the Ganges. People bathe in it during many festivals.

While passing through the forests the Pandavas reached ‘Chamuhi’ village where Panchali became exhausted because of thirst. Veer ‘Bheem’ hit the earth with his knee and brought out water from the bosom of the earth. Today, this place is called ‘Bheemgoda’.

The Pandavas used to work at night and during days they remained hidden. As per one story, in village ‘Pandain’ even today there is one step-well which was built by them during one night. Also, one half-built step well is found in the vicinity of Kamakshi Devi temple.

The Kamakshi Devi temple is surrounded by many small villages. This is the miracle and the grace of Kamakshi Devi that around the Temple there is no dearth of water. On the left side of the temple there is a beautiful pond of water in which water enters from an underground stream passing under the feet of Maa Kamakshi Devi. The pond are under renovation/beautification process now.
