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.

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.
