Hinduism - Where Is Naimisha Tirtha In India?

 


Naimisha is a city and holy location (tirtha) in Uttar Pradesh, some fifty miles northwest of Lucknow.

Naimisha is mentioned as a forest in later sectarian literature known as the puranas.

The city's main attraction nowadays is Chakra Tirtha, a spring-fed bathing (snana) pool.

This bathing pool, according to legend, includes water from all of India's sacred locations, making it the finest spot for devout Hindus to take a holy bath.
