Brahma Kund, Sihor

Brahma Kund at Sihor is one of the major attraction. This 12th century stepped tank surrounded by idols of Hindu deities is built by Raja Siddharaj Jaisinh.



Water in Brahma Kund, its source and level is consistent throughout the year despite the place being isolated in the interior hill side.


Built in the style of medieval architecture, has a design of steps, small temples, idols of deities, stone work everything carved within and across the complex.



But now sadly the surroundings have been compromised. The area has been encroached and is a serious threat for its survival.

Oh I am sorry that it is not being kept up as the Sacred place it is. What keeps the water level up?

Oh, too bad that such an ancient, historic Kund is being compromised. It looks like you were there on a day when it was empty of visitors. All those archways are so beautiful.

Thanks for posting it here and bringing it to everyone's notice. never heard about this place!!

Its a sad story across India..apathy towards heritage! we have been conditioned to believe that "modern" is good and our past has no future...such a mindset is causing havoc with our heritage!
