About Kapal Mochan

The ancient pilgrim site of Kapal Mochan is located on the Bilaspur Road near Ambala. The temple is small and situated beside a ‘sarovar’ or pond named Brahma Sarovar. It is said that if a person bathes here, they will be relieved of all burdens and sins. Legend holds that Brahmanhatya, i.e., killing a Brahmin is a major sin but the guilty can be freed of this upon bathing in the holy waters of Brahma Sarovar. Muni Vyas is said to have composed scriptures at the banks of River Saraswati that once flowed through this place. After killing evil Ravana, Sri Rama is also said to have visited this place in his ‘Pushpak Vimaan.' Also, Guru Nanak Ji and Guru Gobind Singh paid a visit here and increased the sanctity of the temple. Do you know that this infinitesimal temple finds mentions in the Mahabharata and the Puranas? It is said to have been visited by Mahadeva (Lord Shiva) and the Pandavas as well. Nearly five lakh pilgrims visit this place during the annual fair ‘Kapal Mochan Mela’ which is held during November. If you’re lucky enough to have your itinerary here scheduled around that month, you will see the liveliness of the place and sheer devotion of pilgrims.
