JARASANDHA KA AKHARA

The epic of Mahabharata narrates the King Jarasandha as an important character whose torturous rule came to an end when Bhima (second Pandava brother) killed him at this place.

According to the legend of notorious Jarasandha, 99 kings were defeated and imprisoned by him to be offered as sacrifice. As he was a mighty and invincible wrestler, so he used to challenge the kings to wrestle with him at his wrestling square. To put an end to Jarasandha's horrendous plan, Krishna advised Bhima to trick him in the duel to kill Jarasandha. This spot is believed to be the legendary platform for duel of the notorious Jarasandha.
