Area Details

There is a brahmanical story which says that Shiva was so heartbroken over the death of his wife Sati that the tears literally ‘rained from his eyes’ and ultimately transformed into a holy pool outside the Katas Raj Temple. It is said that Shiva and Sati spent some of their marital life here.
The fascinating part is that these are several temples built on a single piece of land close to one another. This complex is situated in Katas village, 40 kilometers from the Chakwal district of Punjab. These temples are locally known as ‘Qila Katas’.
Though there aren’t any idols present inside the temples anymore, but due to the holy nature of the pool, it is still a place constantly visited by its believers. Hindus residing in Pakistan and those in India visit this site every year as part of their pilgrimage to perform certain religious rituals. The place is not only historical but is also smooth and attractive at the same time.
Accordingly, it has the capability of dragging tourists on a larger scale if developed and maintained well. Thanks to the Pakistani government, the temple is well-maintained and Pakistan should keep up its preservation efforts in the future as well.
A few months ago, Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, sent a vessel of water from the holy pond of Katas Raj to Indian statesman LK Advani, who had visited the site back in 2005 during his visit to Pakistan, as a goodwill indication. These temples are a true depiction of what an antiquated traditional site is ought to be – highly captivating and impressive.
