Drongasagar Lake

Place of OriginMauza Ujjain, Kashipur, Uttranchal

Description

At present a huge pond with lotus flowers is situated here. The pond is surrounded by temples of various deities. Earlier, there were 32 temples around the periphery of this pond. The excavated site at Drona Sagar is protected by the Archaelogical Survey of India.

Religious significance

Drona Sagar is believed to be associated with Guru Dronacharya, teacher of the Pandavas and the Kauravas in the epic Mahabhrata. Many believe that the Drona Sagar was created by the Pandavas as a Guru Dakshina (fee) for Dronacharya. The Skand Purana states that the water of Drona Sagar is as holy as that of the Ganges.
