Kurukshetra – Chulhe ka khana aur Itihaas

Needs a location

Kurukshetra, a peaceful town located a distance of 170 km from Delhi, everyday romances with the beautiful sunset turning its clear sky into a reddish color, and dropping its reflection into the waters of Asia’s biggest pond named as Braham Sarovar. The invigorating Sarovar aarti happening over the ghats of Brahma Sarovar during dusk makes the entire evening even more magical. The chants of mantras, the saffron-clad sadhus, the vast expanse of water, the picturesque sunset and all the energy in the surroundings are experienced as just another normal evening in the city of Kurukshetra. It often paints the picture of being a mini-Varanasi in the mind of visitors. It’s still an offbeat tourist destination and free from the crowd. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, while enriching your knowledge, then this experience is for you. The drive on NH1 between Delhi and Kurukshetra is a treat to the eyes and the soul of any metro resident as this stretch is bestowed with green farms on both the sides of the road. In the close vicinity of Kurukshetra, lie countless villages still connected with the traditional ways of living. During this trip, we will also be visiting a village which can be labeled as Kurukshetra’s local mini-Punjab where you will have the joy of eating chulha ka khana and get a tractor ride.
