Bheemkund – Mysterious water pool in India #incredibleindia
It is a magical water pool. Natural in nature, with clear blue waters. Also known as Neelkund. There is an uncovered story about this place, which keeps you intrigued. It is situated near Bajna village in Chhatarpur district, Madhya Pradesh. It is 77 km away from Chhatarpur by road in the Bundelkhand region. Bheemkund is astonishingly a natural water reservoir and a holy place that purportedly dates from the era of the Mahabharata. The water of the Kund (tank) is so clean and transparent that one can see fish swimming in the water.
The pool lies in a cave, about 3 metres from the mouth. To the left of the passage is a small Shivalinga. The pool is a deep indigo blue which distinguishes with the red stone walls. Folklore attached to this place dates back in the times of Mahabharata, linking Bhimkund with the Pandavas. Exhausted under the sweltering sun, Draupadi fainted of thirst. Bhim, the strongest of the five brothers, hit the ground with his Gada, water swelled out and the pool came into being.
The roof of the cave has a small opening just above the kund; this is the place Bhim is said to have hit with his Gada. Closely monitoring, it does look like the head of a Gada. It is 20 meters in width. During the Tsunami in India, there were 30ft high jump in water levels. 10 ft high tides arose from the deep waters. The locals have observed it.
The water is blue, deep blue naturally. It keeps on shifting its colours as well. No one till date could examine the depth of – the real depth of this bheemkund. 200 ft deep down the pool if you go you experience water cyclone. Whenever there is a natural calamity there is an effect of it seen in this pool.
Even the earthquake of Nepal had an impact of it here. The pandits and locals have witnessed 7 ft high tides of water. Same was with the earthquake in Japan. It is being said that this place always indicates about the natural calamities to take place. It is a mystery that how this place indicates the natural calamities before it even occurs. And after a few hours, we see some of the other natural mishap happening.
The water is holy and can be kept for years as it is. No algae, no bacteria, and no dilution occur in the water. It is like Ganga and other holy water we keep with us. If this has a connection with oceans or a way to the ocean, then why this pool does not have saltwater. There are theories based on them but no one can prove it. Chattarpur has no connections with the ocean for 1000s km.
Pujari Ramesh Prasad Pandey Ji – serving there for four generations of his. To know the real depth of this pool huge pumps and pipes have been places and people have returned from 80mtr saying that we can’t go deep than this. The administration had tried to pump out the water for 24 hours everything outside was blocked but the water was not dipping an inch also. They were amazed.
International sky drivers and researchers came to know the mystery they put the camera down and took pictures of somewhere around 200ft down and still did not got the ground layer. Another mystery is that if someone gets drowned in the water and dies – the body is undiscoverable. One cannot find the body of the person, usually, the body of the person floats on the water once dead, but here it vanished.
The archaeologists and the excavators have used their best methods to measure the depth of this Kund but none have succeeded so far. A few years ago a team from “Discovery channel” visited BheemKund and tried to calculate the depth of Kund but unable to do so.
Usually, when a man dies underwater, his body floats above the surface after his death. Whereas, the body once drowned in Bheemkund, never floats up and shockingly the body goes missing and can never be found back.
