History

Damodar kund, at the foot hills of Girnar mountain, near Jungadh city is considered by Hindus as holy as Ganga / Triveni sangam for taking bath to get rid of one`s since and immersion of ashes/bones and for performing religious rites on occasions. There are changing rooms and public toilets etc.


The lake is 257` long and 50`broad. The kund is a temporary check- dam reservoir and shifted regularly to maintain water levels through out the year at damodar Kund. The 15th century poet Narsinh Mehta used to bath here and supposedly composed most of his mornig hyms here. His statue is installed at the Kund. Very ancient temples of Damodar, Radha and Baladev are on the banks of the kund.

Famous for

A beautiful lake situated near Talav Gate and ST Bus Station. This was an abandoned place till 1995 AD, as the lake did not have any storage capacity. In the year 2000, the lake was reconstructed and deepened by joint effort of the people of Junagadh. Water flowing in Kalwa river is diverted to this lake in monsoon season when Willingdon dam overflows. It maintains water and water level of surrounding areas throughout the year. The protective wall with seating arrangements, and a small garden called “Shahid Park” lure a number of citizens to pass their evening there, particularly on Sundays. Boating in the lake is also recently started.
