1500 YEARS OLD KATAS RAJ TEMPLES

Katasraj is the second biggest holy place in Punjab for Hindu pioneers after Jawala Mukhi.

Katas Raj thus has a collection of buildings and ruins that stretch in an unbroken line from the Buddhist era down to British rule, thereby, preserving at least 1500 years worth of history in that particular space.

The Katas Raj Temples near Chakwal in Punjab province of Pakistan are attributed to the eras of the Hindu Shahis (kings) dating from about 615-950 CE and are dedicated to Lord Shiva. A Brahmanical story relates this site directly to Shiva, whose unconsolable grief at the death of his wife Sati led to a rain of tears which formed two pools of water, one at Pushkara near Ajmer and the other at Katas. 

The temples derive their name from Kataksha, which in classic Sanskrit means: god’s tears!!
