The Katas Raj Temples is a complex of several Hindu temples and contains a holy tank named Katas which is considered as sacred by the Hindus, and it is believed that by drinking the water in the holy tank would cure all kinds of diseases and removes our sins. The temple complex is situated in Punjab, Pakistan. The temple tank is considered as the teardrops of Lord Shiva, after he wandered in the earth after the death of Mata Sati. The importance of this temple is mentioned in Mahabharata.
The great Guru Nanak had visited the Katas Raj Temples. This temple is not maintained properly, and currently some minority Hindus are looking after this holy place, and have done some maintenance work at their own cost. Only minority Hindus living in the nearby areas are visiting this popular temple. However during Shivrathri festival day, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims from Pakistan and India would visit this lovely shrine in order to get the blessings of the great Lord “SRI MAHADEV”. In the temple complex, Lord Rama, Hanuman and Shiva temples are found. It is an ancient temple, and it is believed that this temple would have been built by the Pandavas, since they have frequently visited this place during their exile.
Let us worship Lord Shiva, Rama and Hanuman and be blessed.
