The Brahma Kund in Rajgir, Bihar, is one of several sacred sites throughout India of the same name. It is said that hot water from seven different springs (together called Saptarshi, or seven sages) merge and the water flowing from the ‘kund’ is associated with healing power, likely due to the sulfur in the hot springs.
We visited the Brahma kund early morning in Nalanda district, we entered the outer area, where we saw many people sitting beneath smaller fountains in a row. We were told that this was the water piped from the kund and many people come here to bathe for healing their ailments.
Then we took the stairs into the kund, which was really a small square pond. There were couple of people bathing in the pond and even before I could step in, I noticed a sign which laid out the rules of do’s and don’t’s in the kund.
We spent around 15 minutes total at Brahma Kund and though it is not a major tourist attraction in Rajgir, it is recommended for a healing & relaxing experience for the body if in the region.
