Bhimgoda Tank

Haridwar is a treasure trove of sacred tanks. One of these mythological tanks (Kund in Hindi) is the Bhimgoda Tank. The holy tank derives it name from Bhima, a legendary character of the Hindu epic Mahabharat and the second of the five Pandava brothers. The divine sanctity of the site pulls in hordes of devotees from all across India and the world. Located just at 300 m from Har ki Pauri in Haridwar, the Bhimgoda Tank enlivens the glorious scenes of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The creation of tank has an interesting legend attached to it.

Bhimgoda Tank

Legends has it that the sacred tank came into existence when Bhim, one of the five Pandava brothers, hit his knee (Goda in Hindi) against the ground. It happened when the Pandavas were on their way to the Himalayas through Haridwar. When Bhima felt the need for water, he thrusted his knee against the rocks and out flew streams of water. The water of the Ganges flows into this tank. Built here is also a canal that deviates the water of the Ganges into the Bhimgoda Headworks. Travellers also like to see the dam constructed here, aside from eye catching canals and fountains. The dam at Bhimgoda Tank is an architectural feat of the modern day.

The fountains add much to the overall charm of this place. The fountains around Bhimgoda Headworks have been provided with artificial waterfalls. A sweet fragrance spreads all around as these fountains are made to pass through wonderful flower beds. Beautifully laid out gardens that surround the Bhimgoda Tank make the place all the more scenic for travellers.
