Indradyumna Sarovar

Indradyumna Sarovar

 

There are two Indradyumna Sarovars

The first one is mentioned in the Mahabharata. 

Indradyumna was a great king who had performed a thousand yagas. 

He gave millions of cows in charity (godanam).

As the cows walked past, from their footprints, a lake was formed in the Himalayas. 

This lake is called Indradyuman Sarovar.

The second one is in the holy city of Puri, Odisha. 

It is near the Gundicha Temple. 

The holy water from this tirtha was used by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to purify the Gundicha temple before Rath-yatra. 

Raja Indradyumna is closely connected to Puri. 

Indradyumna Maharaj Temple is also there near the Sarovar. 

The other two main temples are Saksi Gopala Temple and Neelakanteshwara Mahadeva Temple.

The same story of yaga is attributed to the lake in Puri also.
