A trip to Kurukshetra

A Place of Historical and religious importance, this place has played a key role in the belief of the Hindus. It is believed that this is the place where Brahma has started his creation of the world. It is this place where Lord Krishna has delivered his Bhagavat Gita sermon to Arjuna when he was reluctant to fight his own family who were fighting an injust war against him and his brothers. The town takes its name from the King Kuru who offered his arm and legs to the God Vishnu so that he could establish a land of ethics and values.
