When we had visited there nothing as such to be there. There was a men made passage for water flow but at the time we visited no water there. Only a old temple and we really didn't find anything to see there.

The reservior seemed to have been completely dry when I visited and ended up being just a temple visit for me. An old religious place , nothing much to say beyond that.

This is a water reservoir but also a temple for Girnari Brahmins. It is definitely a place to visit. Many people have learned swimming in the olden days here.

Damodar kund is very old, Must be more than 5000 years. Sant Narsi Mehata before 500 years used to visit every day early morning for bathing. Certain things are beyond explanation, damodar Kund is one of them.

This kund is used for Asthi visarjan. So it has been spoiled by the people. Also poorly maintained. It is considered holy kund and comes in the way towards Mount Girnar. So one can stop there while going towards Girnar.

Its a small pond where people do some Puja and bath after it, there is a Bethakji of Vaishnav Sampraday and Radha Damodar ji temple, now it has been developed nicely and there was a time when Lions used to come to drink water over here at night. It comes on the way to Girnar taleti.
