Sacred Pool, Katas Raj Temples, Pakistan

The sacred pool at Katas Raj Temples, said to have sprung from the tears of Shiva at the loss of his wife Satti. It is said to be the twin of the pool at Puruksha at Ajmer and is considered to be where the Pandawa brothers of the Mahabharata epic spent 12 years in exile. Various Hindu (left) and Sikh (center and right) era buildings can be seen surrounding the pool which constitute the Hindu Hanuman temple and private living areas dating from the Sikh period (1800-1850 CE).
