Pehowa Temple (Kurukshetra)

Pehowa Temple, Pehowa Temple tours, Visit Pehowa Temple of Haryana, Temple tour of Pehowa TemplePehowa Temple 27kms from Thanesar, Pehowa was built sometime in AD 882 although an inscription on a temple claims that it was actually built in AD 895 during King Mahendrapal's rule. From excavations we know that the town could also have been a element of the Mahabharata lore.

During the olden period everyone called Pehowa Prithudaka, conveniently naming it after a certain king called Prithu. This Prithu fellow had a father who lay dying, and out of the blue the dying man is believed to have said, "Take me to the river Yamuna Prithudak so that I die in peace there" (translated from whatever the language was then).

The son promptly arranged for his father to be moved to the banks of the Yamuna in Prithudak where he died. Prithu was filled with remorse, for he had expected the change of air to revive the dying man. So he sat on the banks of the river for days on end, making all sorts of offerings to all sorts of gods.

The place where the sad king sat on his fast was then named Prithudaka tirth, and now people have built numerous ghats and temples in honour of the king's sacrifice.
