58. Jyotisar site, Kurukshetra, India

It is written in Puranas that Kurukshetra is named after King Kuru of the Bharata Dynasty, ancestor of Pandavas and Kauravas.The Vamana Purana tells how King Kuru came to settle on this land. He chose this land about 4000 years ago for embedding spirituality with 8 virtues: austerity, truth, forgiveness, kindness, purity, charity, yagya and brahmacharya.

Lord Vishnu was impressed with the act of King Kuru and blessed him and gave him two promises: one that this land forever will be known as a Holy Land after his name as Kurukshetra (the land of Kuru) and the other that anyone dying on this land will be going to heaven.

Later the Battle of Mahabharata was fought on this land, during which Lord Krishna preached Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna.

Jyotisar is one of the most revered holy sites of the holy city of Kurukshetra. A Banyan tree is an offshoot of the holy Banyan tree under which Lord Krishna delivered the sermon of Bhagavad Gita, the doctrine of Karma and Dharma to his wavering friend Arjuna. It is here that He showed his Universal form, the terrifying image of Himself as the Destroyer God.

We dis our prayers and wished happiness to everybody from this historical and amazing place.

Be happy!:)
Hare Krishna!
