Well, I originally hail from City Kurukshetra but after my marriage, I have been living in Moga city in Punjab. As we all know, Kurukshetra has a great history so I would like to share information about a historical place which is quite popular and famous all over the world for its history. The name of the historical building is a Bhadarkali temple which is situated in the entrance of Thanesar to Kurukshetra. This temple is also known by different names such as goddess Kali temple, Shakatipeth temple. It is a myth that someone put their homage in this Temple than he or she definitely get success or power to win. I know about this Temple since when I was a kid because my grandfather told me a great history behind this Temple. Surprisingly, this Temple has great importance and history. I will explain it briefly. God Sati had married Lord Shiva against the will of her father King Daksha. One day, Daksha performs Yagya. He invited all deities but not his own daughter. however, Sati visited there and then, her father insulted her and her husband which she could not tolerate and threw herself into the Yagya fire.
On that time Lord Vishnu releases the Sudarshan chakra that cut Sati’s body into 52 parts, those parts fell on earth at different locations. Sati’s right ankle found in Kurukshetra. So that’s why the presence of the goddess’s body part makes this place so blessed.
Apart from it, another importance of this place is that it is also believed that Mundan in other words, hair removing ceremony of Lord Krishna and Balarama had performed in this temple. So that’s why this Temple has historical and religious value as well.
Well, India is a diverse country as well as, there is a number of varieties of historical buildings. I have the interest to visit special historical places. But here I would like to talk about a historical building.
Interestingly, it is a famous building in India its name is Qutub Minar but, now everyone knows about this building as Qutub Minar complex. It is located in Delhi. Qutub Minar is a 73 meter tall tapering Tower of five stories. It also touches the sky at the peak level.
Apart from that, its first story construction started into round 1192. The Qutub Minar topmost story was damaged by lightning in 1369 and that was rebuilt by firuz Shah tughlaq, who added one another story.
After that, in 1505, an earthquake damaged Qutub Minar it was also repaired by the Sikandar Lodi. I remember, my grandfather told me about 1 accident related to this building. Sometime before 1974, do local police was allowed access to the top of the minaret through the internal staircase. On 4th December 9081 the staircase lighting failed after that 300to450 visitor’s scamper towards the exit and 47 were killed in the crush and some people were injured.
Moreover, 10th standard my school trip also went there me and my all class fellows saw the Qutub Minar as well as we got knowledge about Indian history. Nowadays, the visitor also visits and click some photos with historical marks.
Surprisingly, young ones also show their interest related to history. This building name also is written in the world record book.
