The sprawling Katasraj shrine is believed having been constructed by the Pandavas during their 14-year exile. According to Hindu mythology they spent 12 years there
Apart from the 600 BC temples, which are in a dilapidated condition, there is a sacred pool with mythical association with Lord Shiva
The pond is believed to have come into being with the tears of Lord Shiva on the death of his wife Sati.
This is a great gesture across the border that should help towards building a more friendlier relationship and reduce the anti-Hindu and anti-Muslim rhetoric spewed by politicians in Pakistan and India.
