This year Mahashivratri to be celebrated in Pak's Katasraj Temples too
Lahore, Jan 11 (ANI): Perhaps for the first time in last few centuries, the Mahashivratri festival would be celebrated at the Katasraj Temples in Pakistan's Punjab province
Located on a hill six km from Choa Saidan Shah in Chakwal, the Katasraj Temples have historic and religious value for Hindus.
The temples have also been mentioned in Mahabharata - one of the three major Sanskrit Hindu epics. According to Hindu beliefs, both Katas and the Paskar (Ajmer) are the eyes of Shiva. It was here only that Alberuni attempted to measure the circumference of the Earth, studied Sanskrit and wrote his renowned famous book "Kitabul Hind". To this day, Hindu pilgrims regularly visit the site for worship. (ANI)
