Importance of Naimisharanya Tirth

Another legend is that the name of Naimisharanya Tirth comes from Naimisha Forest.The story regarding the importance of this forest is that, after the great battle of Mahābhārata, sages and saints, who were very much concerned about the beginning of Kali yug, approached Brahma. Being aware of the extreme effects of the yuga, they urged Brahma to show them a place which can stay untouched by the effects of Kaliyug. Brahma took out a sacred wheel (Chakra) and rolls it down on the earth and said, where ever that wheel stops, that would be the place. The sages followed  the wheel, which stopped in the forest of Naimisharanya. Thus, sages and saints, made it their abode for further penance.As per the legends, Lord Brahma had himself indicated that in Kaliyug era, Naimisharanya would be the most sacred and holy place for meditation. 

It is because of its historic importance that people from all over India visit this holy place. Chakratirth, Bhooteshwar Temple, Yvas Gaddi, Havankund, Lalita Devi Temple, Panch Prayag, Shesh Temple, Shivalay Bhairav Ji Temple , Soot Gaddi, Sri Hanuman Garhi,  and Panch Prayag, are some of the most sacred places to visit in addition to Mishrikh which is around 10 kms. away from this place.
