    Katasraj temple of Lord Siva in Chakwal, Pakistan. The temple complex is believed to date back to Mahabharata era.







    One legend holds that Lord Siva's 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. It is believed that the famous dialogue between Yaksha & Yudhishthir (Yaksha Prashna) took place at the pond inside the temple complex.

    It is good they are restoring it and road connects them on M2 near salt ranges. However, i really wish they restore them the way they were traditionally built, with same material paints etc.
